The young guests took a responsible approach to the issue of plastic recycling and participated in the recycling of plastic garbage — they brought plastic items from home that are usually thrown into household garbage, and received reusable fabric bags that will help reduce the number of plastic bags used when going to shops.
The children were impressed by the knowledge received from the organizers and invited experts, enjoyed participating in interactive games and watching a selection of cartoons about ecology.
