Plastic recycling event with FLEX alumni

To honor Earth Day this year, FLEX alumni from Turkmenistan organized a project on plastic recycling. During one-week 6 alumni collected plastic waste from households. On May 9th alumni provided the collected plastic to the recycling company in Turkmenistan. As Bagtygul Annayeva’09 (Balkanabat) stated: “Current levels of usage and wrong disposal of plastic generate several environmental problems. Recycling of plastic is one of the most important actions currently available to reduce the negative impacts on environment”.
In addition, as part of ongoing commitment of FLEX alumni to plastic recycling, alumni are planning to receive a recycling bin for the American Councils office in Ashgabat.
