The campaign “Become an Eco Hero! Teach everyone at home to collect waste separately!” conducted jointly by ECOPACK Bulgaria and Bourgas Municipality has now announced its winners. It was the last edition of this initiative, which was implemented in 18 cities across the country in the period 2013-2016. A total of 27,160 students from 272 schools took part and more than 91,000 information brochures were disseminated.
The Become an Eco Hero campaign successfully met its objectives: raising the awareness and knowledge of children and their families about environmental protection and about separate waste collection and its benefits to society and nature; strengthening motivation and building lasting habits related to the separate collection of waste in the color-coded containers.
More than 2,500 children from 32 schools in Bourgas took part in the competition. Thanks to its students’ active involvement, Elin Pelin School won a multimedia projector as the school with highest number of participants. With 90% participation, the students of Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii School in Ravnets won a set of internal waste containers for the separate collection of packaging waste in their school.
