SolidarityNow invites everyone to a recycling workshop of plastic materials!


We are waiting for you on Saturday, September 29th, from 11.00 to 13.00, to share with you a unique experience through an awareness and experimentation workshop on the recycling/up-cycling of plastic materials!

SolidarityNow, in collaboration with Electra Energy Cooperative and Precious Plastic Greece, organizes a workshop aiming at raising awareness and providing experimentation on the recycling/up-cycling of plastic materials. The action will take place at the Intercultural Center “Diadromes”, 26, Boukouvala Str., in Ambelokipi, where SolidarityNow offers educational programs open to all, in the framework of the Education Matters initiative, in partnership with Almasar and with the support of the Development Forum.

Take a plastic product with you and see it transformed using cutting, melting and recycling of plastic materials machines! At this open to the public event, the participants will be informed about creative recycling and will have the chance, with the guidance of the experts, to transform the useless plastic materials into something new, inspired and useful!

How? A plastic bag, a plastic bottle, a plastic cup will get a different form and utility with the recycling machines of Precious Plastic Greece and the experts’ guidance.

The action is linked to the Goal 12 on “Responsible Consumption and Production”, one of the 17 Goals set in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the UN, and the event is a joint event of SolidarityNow and the Hellenic Platform for Development.
