Fundashon Bon Kousa initiated on 23 August, 2012 the start of collecting separate waste like glas, plastic, aluminium and paper at schools. Bon Kousa organised a kliko parade in which 48 kliko's colored the streets of Bonaire. See the video here.
All schools of Bonaire received 4 colorfull kliko's to start educating the children about reuse, reduce and recycling.The schools responded very enthousiastic and are eager to start making use of the new kliko's.
What becomes of all the waste we collect in Bonaire? Bon Kousa is working on a series of informative video's to explain how waste is recycled into new products. See an example here.
To help the children understand the principle of waste separation Bon Kousa developed in close coorporation with Selibon NV and EcoTech Aruba, a play and fun instruction book for age group 6-7 yrs. The book is in Papiamentu and Dutch
