Plastic-Bottle Greenhouse by Dublin Children

A greenhouse assembled using 1,000 plastic bottles recycled by Panda customers and built by children from the South West Inner City Network (SWICN) is being entered into Eco-Unesco's Young Environmentalist Award.

The greenhouse, which supports an irrigation system for watering crops grown inside, is located at Weavers Square Community Gardens in Dublin 8. It will be used to grow tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers that will be used in other SWICN projects.

"The children have been planning, designing and creating this inventive greenhouse since September 2014," said Ivanna Chovgan of SWICN. It is really something to see it fully complete and on site. Everybody involved is really proud of their collective achievement. The innovative way the children have used the recycled plastic bottles from Panda customers shows how enterprising our young people are."

"Using Panda customers recycled plastic bottles to design something so innovative and imaginative is an achievement that the SWICN children should be very proud of," said Panda's Paul O'Doherty. "We're delighted to see Panda customers' recycled plastic bottles used in such an ingenious way. Our support for this project reflects our commitment to protecting the environment and we wish the children every success in the competition".

Panda's 175,000 customers recycle 20 million plastic bottles every year. All of these plastic bottles are sent to be recycled into other products
