Now even schoolchildren know that diapers made of artificial materials decompose in nature as radioactive elements - a few hundred years and with the release of toxic substances. They require special handling. However, their parents still throw while walking, causing thereby a double injury - and nature, and the upbringing of their child who sees it all.

Fallen dry twigs were collected during this work day is not all, of their large number. Therefore, the next "harvest" day is scheduled for next Friday, April 18.
