With the “31 Day Zero Waste Program”, we aimed to raise the awareness of zero waste of the students in pre-school age, which is the most effective age group to learn, and to become a permanent behavior. The program, which was planned to be given to a total of 7000 pre-school students who are studying at the Diamond Center and still continuing their education, was unfortunately made online due to Covid-19. “31 Day Zero Waste Program” was shared as a video every day from the social media accounts of Diamond Centers.

We decided to put the event, which we completed with the “ENVIRONMENTAL ANGELS” certificate, back to the agenda within the scope of Waste Reduction Week. We aim to reinforce the zero waste issue and reach a wider audience by making a collage to the educational videos of the 31 Day Zero Waste Program that we have carried out with our children who receive pre-school education, by sharing them again.

In addition, a call will be made for the first waste reduction week that our children will celebrate, to take their calendar from it.
