A video was shown at (E)co-work which was revealing the damage of plastic items on wildlife. Participants have found out that even when an animal dies because of swallowing a plastic item, it doesn’t decompose for years.
In frames of SunChild 6th International Environmental Festival, on November 12nd, an (E)co-work interactive course on plastic bottles recycling and the damage they make on nature/environment took place at Eon. It was held by Tbilisi Guerrilla Gardening movement member Elene Malashevski-Jakeli.
Elene also talked about features of recycling in different countries. She noted that unfortunately serious actions on solving this issue are taken only in few countries; there are no recycling factories in Georgia as well.
Furthermore, during an interactive workshop discarded and useless plastic bottles turned into beautiful handmade items.
