ECOPACK Bulgaria Campaign ‘Feed Me Separately’
On the occasion of Children’s Day ECOPACK Bulgaria regaled the children of Kyustendil with an educational puppet show and comic coloring books. More than 500 kids enjoyed the play featuring the three special animal characters Paper-eater, Plastic-eater, and Glass-eater, played separate waste collection games, and danced in the square.
The event organized by ECOPACK Bulgaria and Kyustendil Municipality was part of the campaign “Feed Me Separately!” held for the second consecutive year. The aim of the initiative is to acquaint the children with the problems of the environment and the separate packaging waste collection.
Says Mariana Petkova, ECOPACK Bulgaria PR Manager, “Children demonstrate great interest in separate waste collection. In this respect, we should give due credit to their teachers, as well. I believe that with the joint efforts of institutions, parents and packaging waste recovery organizations we will be able to foster lasting eco-friendly habits and attitudes.”
The play created by ECOPACK Bulgaria and the Fairytale Theater Sofia tells the story of three young animal characters who live in the park and feed on packaging waste. The three characters are also featured on some of the new ECOPACK containers.
Their story is told in a children’s comic book available on the ECOPACK website. The children can also test their knowledge about recycling in a fun online game.
