Zero Waste action as an example and a metaphor for activating our future. 

Why are we so reluctant to take a step?

Your Invitation to our Clean Up Event - Şile. 5 May 2018

So far Turkey has been slow to pick up on the international improvement regarding single use plastic and how litter is recycled or disposed. Some municipalities have local success and some, like Şile are strugglin...
