Information and awareness campaign "Without PLASTIC I feel FANTASTIC" is an information and awareness project launched by the AO Association for Waste Recovery with the financial support of the European Union within the Project "Development of the capacities of civil society organizations" which is a regional project implemented by ERIM (previously IREX Europe).
Plastic is the inevitable enemy of modern society, the amount of which increases substantially from one year to the next. The amount produced in the last decade exceeds that produced in a century. In 2019 alone, 465 million tons of plastic were produced, 30% more compared to 2018. Developing countries such as the Republic of Moldova, despite the legal instruments developed, encounter enormous difficulties in organizing an effective management system of these waste. However, there are many of us who are already taking small but smart actions in order to reduce plastic in our daily activities and especially single-use plastic.
The information campaign includes various activities and contests designed by the implementation team, jointly contributing to the facilitation of the population's awareness process regarding the rational and correct consumption of plastic products, the benefits of separate collection, how plastic affects our health and what is expected of to the producers of these packaging to succeed in the transition towards a circular and sustainable economy.
The most important materials produced during the campaign, including presentations from organized events, are listed below:
