In honor of World Environment Day, elementary students of the Adventist School of Porto Feliz,in the interior of São Paulo, held a sustainability fair in the town square. They wanted to raise awareness of the importance of caring for the environment and conscious discarding.
Service started early and residents lined up to dispose of plastic bottles, used batteries, aluminum cans and other recyclables. After disposing of them, each visitor received a voucher that was exchanged for organic products such as lettuce, almeirão (similar to chicory), parsley, fertilizers, seasonings and seeds. All this material was grown by the students themselves in the school garden. Fertilizers with organic residues were prepared by means of a domestic compost.
