The campaign ”Bring Your Bottle, Get a Book” collected nearly 45kg of glass in just about a month. 66 participants took part in the campaign by bringing personally scrap glass packaging to the office of the Public Environmental Center for Sustainable Development (PECSD) on 14 Sava Radulov Street in Varna. Each of them had the opportunity to get a book from the Liszt Fund. In the last two Green Fridays, 15 participants also won a prize in our Christmas raffle. Half of them have an invitation to attend the 2020 Democracy Conference held at the end of February, two will join our eco-shops for free, two have received cups, and everyone got a book and a T-shirt.

The Facebook campaign has reached nearly 28,000 people, with 1,000 of them claiming interest in the event.

Six children became part of our Bottle Feeder eco shop during one of Green Fridays. Together with Ivaylo Ivanov of the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB), they turned old plastic bottles into bird feeders and learned a lot about the life of birds in the winter.

Green Fridays continue into the new 2020s. We return on January 17 with the same ecosystem and even more enthusiasm. Because we understood one thing – many people care about them!
