It is thought to develop awareness programs with schools to aim at the recovery of other materials such as cardboard and paper, and plastic bottles, that in association with the development of a future program of building homemade solar heaters with recovered materials. Stormy start building our home solar heater, as a driver that will be used and developed in the above mentioned program.
