From 13th – 15th May 2022, Prevent Plastics Myanmar co-hosted the Kokkoya Green Festival with Kokkoya Organics. Over 40 different organisations, producers and individuals joined to showcase the locally produced products and crafts and share knowledge on the importance of individual behavioural change to take part in green initiatives.
The Green Festival was filled with fantastic knowledge sharing sessions on waste management, 5Rs, recycling crafts, #valueyourcloths, becoming an environmentalist, protecting snakes for our ecosystems, manta rays and their habitats, by better by less and many more…
The Green Festival was embarked with a movie night on exciting short films buy-sell resell, crocodile creek & save our tree. The green exhibition runs for three days, offering an opportunity for the audience to take the pledge to the cause they believe in and post on social media to obtain a popular tote bag from Prevent Plastics project. On top of the knowledgeable talks, the participants can join in to learn how to make bee wax wrap and vegetarian style cooking classes from the professionals.
Over 800++ diverse participants engage at the three-day Kokkoya Green Festival 2022. Prevent Plastics Myanmar would like to offer our gratitude to all the participants, vendors, individuals and organisations who played their roles in bringing the event to success.
