    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Several Costa Rican schools have recently received over 5,000 desks made by inmates in prisons using recycled materials collected by the children themselves.

    The desks were delivered today at a school in San Jose as part of the program carried out by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Justice, and local dairy company, Dos Pinos.

    The materials used for this project are sheets of Tetra Pak made out of recycled material that was collected by thousands of children in 350 schools throughout the country and processed by Dos Pinos.

    Costa Rica’s Education Minister Leonardo Garnier, said in a statement that this idea has helped to improve the furniture of many schools, and “has become a means of employment for prisoners who are in charge of creating them.”

    Program organizers also highlighted that the initiative also encourages the culture of recycling and efficient use of resources in children, in order to raise awareness about the importance of protecting the environment. (EFE)
