Furthermore, in order to encourage the use of tap water so to reduce bottle packaging (as well as protecting one’s health by avoiding that plastic chemicals components, used for bottles and other types of food packaging, enter the body), students will invite people to taste several types of water placed on the market, including tap water, with their eyes closed!
Finally, students will collect toys and teen-series books to do an interesting activity called “RiGiocattolo e RiLibro: dai loro una seconda vita, se non li usi più” (Re-Toy and Re-Book: give them a second chance, if you don’t use them anymore). These toys and books will be then given to the voluntary association “La Tenda”, during the ceremony of the “Epiphany of solidarity 2019”, so to contribute to the reduction of both the consumption and waste. The association will provide to give them to children, particularly to those coming from socially disadvantaged families.
