Azerbaijan takes serious steps in the protection of environment. Numerous laws are adopted and state programs are implemented in this regard in the country.
An event on collecting paper items for recycling took place at the Flora Hostel in Baku on August 18. The event became a major impetus for further environmental protection.
Initiated by Icherisheher State Historical-Architectural Reserve Office, Green Baku and Animal Care Club, the project aims at paper recycling and maintaining the environmental balance.
The collected waste paper will be recycled into notebooks, and seedlings for planting in the Gala State Historical Ethnographic Reserve will be purchased with the money to be received from the sale of the notebooks.
The event, which has previously been held twice, collected about 3 tons of paper. Sale of vegan and vegetarian food, eco-bags and handicrafts was also organized as part of the campaign. The income from the sale will be used for the treatment and feeding of street animals.
Animal Care Club was created to help sick or injured stray animals. Animal Care Club works to promote the human-animal bond, protect street animals, support animal welfare, stop wildlife abuse, confront cruelty to animals in all of its forms.
The Club’s work includes group visits to animal shelters, ecological projects, and educating people mercy towards animals in the country’s community. The Club consists of curators and volunteers.
