Christmas competition, My Christmas Tree, intended for school and university students and other creative-minded individuals took place in October and November within Waste Management Technologies in Regions, Phase II (WMTR II).
The competition was aimed at promoting public involvement in environmental activities, launching initiatives and development of creative vision among youth, promoting the re-use concept and organizing a Christmas fair for charity purposes.
Under the rules of competition, anyone could send photos of their hand-made Christmas accessories made from old items. The photos were then uploaded on a Facebook page of WMTR II program.
The first phase of the above competition ended on November 26. Based on the number of “likes” collected by the authors of photos and on the quality of the produced items, 20 participants were selected for a trip to Bulachauri Green Centre to prepare even more Christmas accessories from the old stuff.
WMTR II program will conduct a charity sales and exhibition of these Christmas souvenirs in the frameworks of two Christmas fairs.
Visit our shop to see how the old stuff keep on living, save resources and help others by buying some interesting accessories.
