March 18th through 23rd, during the Ecology Week event, SUSU students will be able to learn everything about the importance of separate collection of waste, hand over items they don’t need for recycling, visit a free market, and create items from recyclable materials at one of the master classes.
“The goal of our event is to bring students’ attention to the issue of the huge volume of waste. Show them that recyclable materials are not waste, but a resource which can be and should be reused. I myself am interested in this topic and I separate my waste at home, slowly teaching others,” says SUSU student Tatiana Busorgina, the organizer of the Ecology Week.
Every day throughout the week, on the third floor of the main building from 9:30 to 10:30 and from 13:00 to 14:00, students will be able to hand over paper and cardboard, plastic, textiles, batteries and electronics, glass, and metal. In return, the organizers promise gifts made of materials which do not harm the environment.
Ecology Week also includes the Freemarket, at which students will be able to share what they no longer need but what might be of use to others. The culmination of this week will be a series of master classes, where students can learn how to make paper and create covers for their passports from plastic bags.
