The Recycling Wheel

Victoria Manzur School, Monteria
County Colombia Year 2012

In 2012, 13-year-old Ivan and his friends at Victoria Manzur School, Monteria, realised that burning of waste tyres pollutes the environment and affects people's health. To prevent such pollution, they made creative furniture from tyres. They further gathered support from environmental groups and raised environmental awareness by involving students and teachers.
