How do children protect the environment?

Another edition of the educational campaign “Children protect the environment. The child-friendly environment” conducted in Pruszków kindergartens came to an end. The theme of the campaign organized in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Protection of the Pruszków City Hall was the proper handling of electro-waste and used portable batteries and accumulators. The project included a competitive collection of used portable batteries and accumulators, which ended on 12 May 2023. Participating kindergartens collected a total of 2,908 kg of used batteries and portable accumulators. Per kindergarten student this year there were as many as 1.47 kg of batteries collected. Beautiful figures!

The kindergartens that won places 1 through 3 received prizes donated by AURAEKO. Other prizes were funded by the Pruszków City Hall. We congratulate the winners and already encourage Pruszków kindergartens to participate in the next edition of our competition. We all know very well that environmental education of the younger generation is crucial for our common future. If children grow up aware of their impact on the environment and the dangers of mishandling waste, especially waste such as electro-waste and used batteries, we can rest assured about the fate of our planet.
