Ecologist: Pandemic coronavirus has forced us to step back

Some eco-initiatives during a pandemic coronavirus has become impossible to implement. About how the pandemic COVID-19 and the restrictive measures associated with the impact on the environment, on air of TV channel “Saint Petersburg” said the ecologist Anastasia Selezneva.

“I’m sad to notice that some eco-initiatives — for example, with a coffee in reusable mugs, and use of reusable packaging can not be realized now, it’s like we took a step back. But I want to believe that isolation was the pause during which we had time to see what works, what doesn’t and come up with new solutions,” says Anastasia Selezneva.

According to her, one such initiative became the St. Petersburg eco-project by recycling. The authors processed the bottles in the glass workshop and create original designs.

“Our project demonstrates that if you use waste as a material, you can turn them into a resource and to find new solutions to save nature,” — says the ecologist.

Earlier, the “Rosbalt” wrote about how the St. Petersburg environmental activists are working at the time of isolation.

“Rosbalt” presents the project “trash — be honest!”, reminding that the problem of proper disposal of waste concerns all of us, and everyone can contribute to its solution. And what kind of answers we find today will impact our quality of life tomorrow.
