The Budva Zero Waste City Initiative calls on passersby to take a break and recharge their batteries on the smart Budva Zero Waste City benches. The goal of the initiative is to make Budva the first coastal city without waste ("Zero Waste").
What it takes to have a perfect summer is being asked from Eko centar - Eco Centre Budva, the NGO that is implementing the project. With sun, sea, good company and mood, they complement the answer - your phone to record every moment and Wi-Fi, naturally with a little break.
Strawberry Smart Benches that are solar-powered have been installed through the Budva Zero Waste City Initiative in three locations, where the citizens and guests of this town can find them.
Their whereabouts are in the Old Town, on the promenade Slovenska obala and in Rafailovići and they have free Wi-Fi, phone chargers, air quality and humidity meters, air pressure, temperature and noise levels.
"We are pleased to have helped Budva gain the urban mobility of the world's most modern cities through this initiative. These solar, green benches promote the reduction of environmental pollution and the use of green technologies and renewable energy sources. In addition, they have visually contributed to the beautiful appearance of our coastline. I believe that they will be useful and interesting to both citizens and tourists in their daily activities.
With this donation, as well as an earlier one of 30 plastic waste bins, the Coca-Cola Foundation and its partners have shown that they are actively and strategically involved in creating a cleaner and more environmentally conscious Budva," said Magdalena Miljanic from the NGO Eco Centre Budva.
Through Budva Zero Waste City initiative, this summer Budva also received an Interactive Centre, where the participants collect packaging waste and learn about recycling through fun and education.
It is enough to bring plastic bottles together with your goodwill and to win some of the prizes through fun, the organizers point out.
The Interactive Center is located in Stefan Mitrov Ljubisa Park, on the Slovenian coast and is open daily from 10 am to 10 pm.
All project information and event announcements are available on Budva Zero Waste City's Facebook and Instagram accounts.
