This year’s challenge required children to explore, research and present their own creative and innovative ideas on how Trash can be recycled and reused to make this world a better place and reduce the burden on our natural resources. The discovery took them to follow the journey of trash right from collection, to sorting, to smart production and reuse and they came to know that there is more to the garbage than meets the eye.
