Kasia helps build a bottle school in Guatemala

Kasia Marszal has just returned from a two week trip to Guatemala where she worked with Hug It Forward throughout her holiday to try to make a difference to the local community.

Hug It Forward is a grass-roots organisation that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities to build “bottle schools”.

Bottle schools are schools built using “eco-bricks”: plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash. Entire communities come together to make the dream of educational opportunity a reality, by building their own bottle school.


Hug It Forward also strives to raise awareness in developed countries about trash, consumption and the power of community. This mission is equally important to them as facilitating the construction of bottle schools in developing countries.

The work done by Kasia is an inspiration to us all at ACT Clean, and reflects that even when we are off duty we work to our values of pride and team.
