Students from Government Middle School, Burail, have brightened up their school premises with a park made out of trash and upcycled items, and landed themselves in the India Book of Records for it.

The project was part of the Chandigarh school’s Best out of Waste event, which aimed to involve students in the beautification of their school whilst finding a creative and responsible solution to managing the school’s waste.

Waste materials including bottles, toilet seats, jeans, old socks were all transformed into features and embellishments for the ‘Green Corner’ garden.

“It was a long process, but so much fun. Even though we had to work in the sun for long hours in June we never felt tired. The inspiration to make something for our school drove us to work hard and with new ideas,” a first year college student who assisted the high school students on the project said to The Indian Express.
