Ellen and Alyson came up to Nawalpur Secondary School to teach groups of students how to build with cob. After the environmental awareness workshop at the end of last month, they followed up the curriculum with helping the students to build trash bins on their campus out of cob. 

The intention of building with cob rather than buying a plastic trashcan, is that cob is a zero impact method of building that will not produce any more waste. The students had a fun, active day of mixing soil, sand, cow dung, clay, and straw to help construct bins that will hopefully reduce the amount of plastic and paper litter spread across their campus.
