Spring is nearly gone and we are ending a period with new projects and a new direction in the activity of the Clean Wood CO2 association.
This year we resumed the educational projects that support the planting of trees and fruit trees in schools in Mureș County. We launched the project entitled THE GARDEN IN THE SCHOOLYARD – “Education for sustainability: the garden as a pedagogical resource for sustainable development.”
With the support of the English teacher, Maria-Olivia Tătar, we started a collaboration with 3 schools from Mureș County: Hodac Secondary School, Valea Largă Secondary School, Zau de Câmpie Primary and Middle School. The students of the 3 schools participated in the planting activities together with their teachers and enriched the schoolyard or orchard with forest trees, trees, and fruit bushes.
For this first project, 100 walnuts, 30 lindens, 100 fruit trees, and over 50 shrubs were planted. The above-mentioned schools through the official representatives and teachers involved will take care of the seedlings planted for a minimum period of 5 years. Thus, every year, the project supervision team will send a written report with pictures in electronic format in which information related to evolution and news appear. If you are a kindergarten – primary school teacher and want to implement a similar project you can write to us at email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This spring brought us together at Vintage Expo, an event that aims to offer participants alternatives of responsible consumption, encouraging the exchange of second-hand and vintage clothes. The fast fashion industry is responsible for 10% of global CO2 emissions. Fast fashion means cheap, very little used clothing that is quickly produced by retailers, promoting many trends to buy regularly. Moreover, fast fashion uses many materials that pollute the environment and uses labor in unfair conditions.
