Introducing Abdul Muqeet, The Paper Bag Boy

Jan 24th, 2012 | By | Category: Uncategorized

Former Eco-Hero runner-up Abdul Muqeet, also known as the “Paper Bag Boy,”  is no longer an ordinary student; instead, he has become a passionate environmentalist. His project to make paper bags and distribute them in his community, to encourage recycling of paper and discourage use of plastic, is attracting a lot of attention. Honored with various prestigious awards and certificates, Abdul continues to makes bags out of old newspapers and spreads awareness about the harmful effects of plastic on the environment. The bags are known by his schoolmates in the United Arab Emirates as ‘Mukku Bags.’

Since being exposed to the harmful effects of plastic as a child, Abdul has steadily become more committed to “save mother earth and the environment.” Currently, he is fulfilling this mission by campaigning to reduce C02 levels in his home country.
