Recycling of used beverage cartons at Orehek Elementary School

The celebration of Earth day was held at the Orehek Elementary School in May. Children, teachers and local suppliers organized several workshops and presentations of good practice of reuse.

 

In cooperation with local waste management company Komunala Kranj we presented how to produce paper from used beverage cartons. The primary school and kindergarten Orehek are the first users of recycled hygienic paper from their local Municipal material cycle.

 

At the end of the celebration, the mayor Matjaž Rakovec and the headmaster Drago Zalar planted a walnut tree on the school jard – as a symbol of a greener future.
