Free Puppet Show Teaches Kids to Collect Packaging Waste Separately


ECOPACK pursues its educational program “Feed Me Separately” in 7 new towns. The free puppet show will kick off its fourth season on tour across the country on April 16th. The children in 7 towns – Silistra, Dulovo, Shumen, Hisarya, Pazardzhik, Aytos, and Karnobat – will meet the popular puppet characters Hartoyad [Paper-eater], Plastoyadka [Plastic-eater], and Stukloyad [Glass-eater].   They will show the audience how to care for the environment by disposing of their packaging waste separately. After the show the kids will have more fun with dancing and games.
Entrance is free, and every kid will receive a comic book with games and puzzles.
The educational play tells a story about three likeable animal siblings who live in the park and feed on different types of packaging waste.
The first performance is on April 16h in Silistra, followed by:
Dulovo, April 17th,
Shumen, April 18th,
Hisarya, April 24th,
Pazardzhik, April 30th,
Aytos, May 2nd,
And the tour will conclude with a final show in Karnobat on May 3rd.
The characters are the mascots of the “Feed Me Separately” campaign and are familiar from the color-coded recycling containers of ECOPACK Bulgaria.
The puppet show has been touring the country for four years, having started in Sofia on 26 April, 2015. Over this time, the actors from The Fairy Tale Theater have taught more than 3,800 children aged 4 through 8 in 18 towns about recycling. Once they’ve seen the story of the three lovable little characters who make sure the parks are clean, children become zealous supporters of the separate collection of packaging waste and even educate their own parents.
The children’s event is organized by ECOPACK Bulgaria and the municipalities in the towns on the tour map.
