"Sometimes last term, one of my pupils misplaced his notebooks on his way home and we couldn't retrieve it because the books were in a plastic bag (Nylon). It got me thinking and I realised that 25 out of 39 pupils in my class bring books to school in plastic bags! I resolved in my mind that this term, I don't want plastic bags for them anymore! With the help of family and friends, I raised funds and got bags for them."
