Earth day 2014.

Earth day 2014.

This is the 44th anniversary of the Day of Planet Earth in more than 175 countries with the intent of increasing awareness and respect for the natural environment of our planet. This is a day of appreciation for everything we have done and what we need and can do to help us preserve our planet.

Waste and waste management remains a key issue for society globally as well as in Croatia. Although in the waste management hierarchy particular emphasis has been placed on reducing waste generation, recycling and reusing, the application of these principles in practice is still pending. Therefore, this year, most of the program was devoted to the subject of responsible waste management.

LECTURE: “RESPONSIBLE WASTE MANAGEMENT – REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE IN KINDERGARTENS”
Organizers: Sunce Association, Čistoća d.o.o. Split, Natural Sciences School
In 2014, in cooperation with the students of the Natural Science School, we conducted surveys on the use of single-time plastic cups in kindergartens among parents of children’s nursery service users. The results of this survey will be presented in the lecture, as well as examples of good practice and solutions that contribute to sustainable development, preservation of health and the environment for future generations. Namely, although we are faced with the fact that Karepovac landfill is at the end of its capacity, but also with the obligation of cities to reduce the amount of waste disposed to landfills, Split’s kindergartens often use one-time plastic glasses. Thus, between 8000 and 9000 plastic cups per day are converted into a waste. At the annual level for plastic cups in  Split kindergartens, parents spend 240,000.00 kn. After giving lectures the quickest to give away the use of one-time plastic cups and make the decision in practice, and thus contribute to reducing the amount of waste that is being disposed daily on the Karepovac landfill, will be awarded a green excursion by their choice. Other kindergartens who go through multiple glasses by the end of 2014 will be awarded a Green Marjan excursion with the educational leadership of Sunce Association.
