The Green Revolution association organized, on Saturday, in King Mihai I Park (Herastrau) in Bucharest the second edition of the „2nd Life” Toy Fair, an event dedicated to ecological, financial and social education.
The event organized at Roaba de Cultura in Herastrau hosted a debate focused on financial and ecological education, recycling workshops, toy & bike repairs and several public activation actions offered by sponsors: concerts, photo corners, interactive games, raffles dedicated to children etc.
At the same time, the toys sold at the Green Revolution stand will turn into money for the „Bread and Tomorrow” cause, which belongs to World Vision. Also, during the fair, the children could sell their toys that they no longer use, and part of the money obtained represents donations for a humanitarian cause.
Through the „2nd Life” Toy Fair, Green Revolution aimed to achieve: social and community involvement; donating a percentage of sales to a chosen cause/NGO; financial education & sales; how do we determine what can be sold/repaired – market value; what added value can one add – services (customer care, packaging); how to sell; educating and activating participants for environmental protection; education regarding the waste of material and financial resources in the toy industry; the 3Rs (Reuse, Repair, Recycle); application of what was learned.
The Green Revolution Association, founded in March 2009, is the first non-governmental urban ecology organization in Romania that puts into practice the measures that are the basis of building a green city.
