    Step 1 - Start with WHY..

    In the modern and industrial European country such as Czech Republic was in 2020 recycled only 30% of plastic material, 39% was burned as a certified fuel and remaining ended up somewere else. People can collect it but do not know how to reuse it.
    In my opinion, problem is in the ignorance.

    I believe that education with real examples can increase awarness about lowering consumption of single use plastic, reusing and recycling. Young generation should know about plastic more information that I learned as a teenager.

    We have an ability to choose how our future World will look like.




    Step 2 - Download package

    Total package has 1.1 GB. Its not possible to upload it on this how-to page.

    You can download it for free from Google drive link:
