Pułtusk supports Earth Day!

22nd of April was the Earth Day. I think most of you heard about this worldwide annual event that aims to raise awareness about environmental protection. Anyway, small historical note will not be out of place. So, according to web-site of Earth Day Network, this action has started in 1970 with a grassroots demonstration and today it’s a huge network that unite 22 000 of participants in 192 countries of the World. The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees and wildflowers for Earth Day. But of course there are plenty of other ways to mark this event, for example educational and handicraft workshops or even garage fairs.
We left the right of tree-planting for a local Forest Service and decided to run an eco-workshop in Liceum. By general consent we agreed that our topic is recycling and reusing. The main reason is that some time ago we discovered that our houses are full of plastic bottles and newspapers and it was great to know that Internet is full of great recycling ideas as well! Inspired by really talented masters of creative recycling  we started working on our own. 

When we met our students I think they were a bit confuse because most of them were boys (and as well-known many boys are not eager to do handicrafts), but later they found it funny and easily dropped into work. As a planned result we should get a coaster, but of course it takes more time then we had. But anyway I think all of students can be proud of themselves!  

Links of works that for sure inspire you to start recycling of bottles and newspapers that you meet on your way (at least I liked them so much that I had this feeling ;-):
Beauty Harmony Life
Best out of waste.

Have a nice day and take care of our planet,

P.S. by the way, number of places in workcamps are reducing with every each day! Hurry up or you will waste your chance to spend unforgettable holidays! Go to our web-site to choose a workcamp of your dream!
