In April 10 city public transport stops in Sofia will have additional functionality. Special containers for separate collection of plastic waste are embedded in existing facilities and invite: “Give your plastic bottle the chance to live again.”
The non-standard campaign is part of the 12-year history “My Green City”, organized by Coca-Cola in Bulgaria in partnership with ECOPACK Bulgaria and Sofia Municipality. The aim of the initiative is to show that together, with little effort of each of us, we can make our city greener and cleaner. With the quantitative equivalent of the collected plastic will be produced the first in Bulgaria 3D printed benches of recycled plastics, which will be placed in the Zaimov park in Sofia.
This year, “My Green City” is in support of the global commitment of the Coca-Cola System “World without Waste”, which aims to collect and recycle the equivalent of disposable and disposable packaging made in the market by 2030. For the past 11 years of employees from the Coca-Cola System in Bulgaria and citizens managed to collect thousands of sacks of waste, renovated dozens of locations all over the country, planted three forests and adopted two more. Every year, the campaign selects locations where volunteer work is needed and useful in overall environmental care and contributes to improving environmental conditions and resources in the area
