Reset yourself-be ECOfriendly

The ecological culture of a person has been formed since childhood; therefore, it is necessary to learn to be ecologically friendly since this age. The motto of the project is a phrase from work by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry": “When you've finished washing and dressing each morning, you must tend your planet. It's very tedious work, but very easy.”

We believe that it is not enough to speak about the necessity of sorting the garbage or throwing it in the proper places. We must try to reduce its amount. There are many examples of how some people successfully use the old things while other people consider the same things garbage. For example, a famous Estonian fashion designer Reet Aus and her team have a very straightforward plan — to save the world from textile waste by selling data-based software to fashion brands. . Also, famous people wear vintage clothes at many important events. But still, this attitude is not too common in society. Many people consider recycling as a sign of poverty or stinginess. We would like to show that this is not true. It is possible to look smart and unusual, to surround yourself with beautiful things, without spending a lot of money. It is important for young people at the age of 13-15 because we do not want to look the same, but we cannot buy yet expensive and unusual things. But we can combine the pleasant and the useful. We can reduce the amount of garbage, creating new things for ourselves altering old ones and be an example to others. This problem is also important for our partners. 6 countries will take part in our project because it is really a global problem that concerns all of us. We will also use social networks to spread our ideas, so we hope that we will find many supporters from different countries.

Project’s goal:

To make recycling more popular for youngers, showing with examples how to use unnecessary and used things in everyday life.

Objectives of our project:

To promote a thrifty attitude to the resources To realize the creative potential of teenagers.
