Jiading going green in culture week

THE Netherlands Environmental Protection Cultural Week is in full bloom at Life Hub@Anting plaza in Jiading District, featuring music, delicacies, tulip appreciation and environment-related activities.

The highlight of the week is a recycled products’ production workshop. Visitors can witness plastics smashed and melted and transformed into new materials.

The new materials are subsequently made into fashion items or practical products such as necklaces, earrings, plates and trays.

“We want to demonstrate in a simple way on how plastic is recycled,” said Adele Foucart, co-founder of Precious Plastic China.

“We want to raise people’s awareness about plastic waste.”

“You drink a bottle of water and you use the bottle for just 10 minutes, but it will last for hundreds of years after recycling.

“It is not waste but a material that we can reuse.”

There are display areas of recycled products and waste collection, allowing visitors to get an insight into garbage classification and collection.

Different types of plastics, new environmental protection products and garbage collection boxes are also displayed.

The event is supported by culture and tourism authorities in Jiading.


Date: Through March 22, 10am-10pm

Venue: Life Hub @ Anting
