The world produces 2.12 billion tonnes of waste every year, says a statistics by the United Nations, which also warns that these figures are going up. The UN also points out that reusing household items and creative recycling is one way to slow down this menace.

Luckily, Bahrain is at the forefront of these efforts and helping the Kingdom in this initiative are several bright minds. One amongst them is 16-year-old Kiana Goyal.

Goyal, a student of the New Millennium School, is engaged in creative recycling of products while at the same time having a lot of fun doing them. No, it’s not just that.

Goyal is also helping several less fortunate people in society with her work. She is making and selling recycled and customized pots through her Instagram page @Island floraplanters, while also donating the funds thus generated to Sneha Recreation centre.

Sneha is a recreation centre for children with special needs run by Indian Ladies Association. On the 7th of this month, Goyal donated proceeds from her sales to the centre. Treasurer Kiran Mangle and President Shipra Dhir Passi and other Board members received the amount at the Sneha recreation Centre premises in Hoora.

Goyal’s message is clear. Creative recycling is good for the environment, saves money, and brings new meaning to lives.
