Natal Sustentável


WHAT will be done


What is most important when decorating Christmas is creativity! That is why the União das Freguesias de Perafita, Lavra and Santa Cruz do Bispo challenges the community to create and share, incorporating, the concept of recycling the materials to be used in christmas decorations this year. The goal? Reuse textiles that are no longer used and build Christmas trees! “Natal Sustentável” is the name of the action that the Union of the Parishes of Perafita, Lavra and Santa Cruz do Bispo, inscribed in the “European Week for Waste Reduction”. This action aims to challenge the school and associative community, to build a Christmas tree, from the reuse of end-of-life textiles. This initiative aims to raise awareness among the community of sustainable consumption and the circular economy, demonstrating that a material in order to be valued. In the end, the materials used in the structures produced will be sent to recycling, aiming once again at their recovery in the chain. Christmas trees will be placed in the public spaces of the parish during the European Week for Waste Prevention (19-27 November), and will be on display throughout the Christmas season.
