Bottles For Book

THE STORY:

We started as a group of 31 individuals with one vision, bridging families through education. In doing so, we’ve come across Hug it Forward, a grass-roots organization that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities in developing countries to build "bottle schools". Just like us, Hug It Forward believes that education is the future.

What’s a bottle school?

Bottle schools are schools built using plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash known as eco-bricks. Of course, reinforced with concrete and rebar, the eco-bricks take place of cinder-blocks. Bottle schools are much cheaper to build than traditional schools, they clean up the environment, teach lessons about environmental sustainability, and involve the entire community in their construction, resulting in a sense of pride and ownership.

With the average cost of $6,500 to build a classroom, we want to raise at least $13,500 for this project in Latin America and we are sure that we can do it with your help! Please join us in our vision to touch, move and inspire the world around us.
