Together with the secondary school in Veitshöchheim, the rubbish that the two founders brought back from Sylt some time ago has been washed and sorted as part of a voluntary campaign during the holidays.
The founders showed the children a few things about waste, waste avoidance and proper recycling. Afterwards, the pupils were allowed to get active themselves. The rubbish from Sylt was washed and then sorted.
The rubbish was then taken to the UNTHA company in Karlstadt, where the washed and sorted marine plastic was shredded. Are you interested in what was done with the waste there?
Afterwards, the shredded plastic was sent to experts for analysis.
Many thanks to ALL those involved!
You were great!
Do you want to give children an understanding of recycling and the sustainable use of plastic as part of an action day?
Do you want to offer children an eventful day?
Do you have questions about a cooperation with the IFOPR?

If we want to save resources and protect the environment, we have to change our consumption behaviour, that’s clear. But where to start?
The pyramid for sustainable consumption offers a good starting point.
The pyramid is based on Maslow’s pyramid of needs. As in his pyramid, the most important principles for us humans are listed at the bottom.
We will briefly show you what the individual levels of the pyramid mean and how you can easily integrate them into your everyday life.
Use what u already have.
Many new purchases are not absolutely necessary. Use what you already have, or at least think about it for a moment longer.
Repair instead of buying new.
Repair the things you own instead of buying something new. For example, a new phone battery is not only cheaper, but also better for the environment.
Do it yourself!
Making things yourself can not only be fun, but is also extremely resource-efficient. You can find many instructions on how to make things yourself on the internet.
Borrowing instead of buying.
Before you buy something that you will probably only need once, ask your friends. Maybe someone there can help you out.
Swap instead of throwing away.
Need something you don’t already own? Then take a look at the items you no longer need and try to trade them in. There are also online portals for this.
Buy second hand.
Second-hand items are generally more resource and energy efficient than new purchases. You can also save money and possibly prevent the item from ending up in the rubbish.
If none of the above alternatives help, try to buy regional, organic products. Eco-labels can be a good guide.
