Winners take home AED 12,000
Environment Agency Abu Dhabi has launched an initiative for schools in Abu Dhabi. The challenge involves schools in Abu Dhabi to compete with each other in collecting single-use plastic water bottles for a two month period. These bottles will be collected and sent for recycling.
The ‘Pile it Up’ challenge comes as part of EAD’s vision of single use plastic-free Abu Dhabi.
The younger generation is getting increasingly eco-conscious. They can play an influential role in encouraging their peers and families to get real on efforts to safeguard the environment. This is the core mandate of Environment Agency Abu Dhabi.
EAD is collaborating closely with Emirates Schools Establishments for the success of the challenge.
The challenge runs until 22nd November, 2022. The grand prize of the challenge is AED 12,000/-, the first runner up will receive AED 10,000/- and the second runner up will receive AED 8,000/-
In total, there are three cash prizes for seven winners and schools winning cash prizes need to allocate the funds towards sustainable projects at school.
The winners are selected based on the highest number of bottles collected and most importantly recycled.
Top seven schools will be featured on EAD social media channels and schools will receive certificates.
