Are you sorting your trash at home?

Did you know that 22. 04. 2018 was a Day Of Earth? Do you know what is “greenhouse effect?” Are you sorting at home your trash? For us is important to take care of ecology, so our volunteers went to

Pula to participate and help promote this issue. Later they had also an ecologic lesson with the local children from kindergarten. You can find impression by our volunteers, below.

Gathering trash and workshop in Pula

Of course, we could have nice free weekend and spent it just with sunbathing, reading and drinking coffee. However, we knew that this weekend is Day of Earth and we decided to do something

We came to Croatia as volunteers so we should also behave as volunteers and help a little bit. First, we visited the beach Stoja to clean it. We don’t know how many kilograms we gathered, but just in 2 hours, we had enough trash to make the trunk of our car (Punto) full.

Next day we took some of the trash which we gathered during our living here in Croatia and tried to create something that will send a message.

This message supposes to share our idea of recycling, that only our own creativity is limiting the way how we use trash as a material for something unique and new.

The lesson of ecology for kindergarten

Last day we spent with children and teachers from kindergarten in Brtonigla (Dječji vrtić Kalimero).

Our supervisor Eric Persel, volunteer Domenico Lena and teachers from kindergarten presented to the children how to sort the trash for different containers and why it is so important. We think that it is important to teach children about those basics because we believe that taking care of our environment needs to be natural as eating of a food on daily base.


For now, we are planning to do also some events here in Brtonigla, Umag and Novigrad so stay in touch with us!
