Eko projekat Budva Zero Waste City

1

Prijestonica ljetnjeg turizma, Budva, ove godine biće mjesto realizacije projekta „Budva Zero Waste City“, sa ciljem da u perspektivi postane prvi primorski grad bez otpada („Zero Waste“). To znači da će grad i građani raditi na selekciji i pravilnom odlaganju ambalažnog otpada i na taj način doprinijeti povećanju stepena reciklaže, saopšteno je iz Eko centra Budva.

Projekat koji realizuje ta NVO uz podršku Coca-Cola Sistema i finansiranje Coca-Cola fondacije prvi put je predstavljen javnosti na Sajmu ekologije, koji se 24. put održava u Budvi. Posjetioci ove manifestacije mogu saznati šta znači „Zero Waste“ koncept, kako će biti primijenjen u Budvi i na koji način svaki građanin može doprinijeti povećanju reciklaže i smanjiti količinu otpada koji završava na deponijama. Štand „Budva Zero Waste City“ stručni žiri Jadranskog sajma nagradio je za uspješan sajamski nastup.

Direktorica NVO Eko centar Budva Andrea Doljanica kazala je da Zero Waste gradovi za građane prije svega znače čistiju i zdraviju životnu sredinu i poboljšavaju kvalitet njihovog života.
“Suština Zero Waste pokreta je plansko i održivo upravljanje otpadom, kako bi se smanjila količina otpada na deponijama, a povećala ponovna upotreba ambalaže i reciklaža. Zero Waste gradove i turisti sve više biraju za odmor i rekreaciju“, objasnila je Doljanica.

Ona je navela da će u okviru Budva Zero Waste City biti sprovedene različite aktivnosti-edukacija građana, djece predškolskog i školskog uzrasta, donirane kante za odlaganje plastike i pametne klupe, kao i Interaktivni centar u kojem će posjetioci na jednom mjestu moći da saznaju kako će Budva postati Zero Waste te kako oni mogu da doprinesu i kako da čuvaju prirodu.

„Uskoro ćemo opremiti grad sa 30 posebnih kanti za odlaganje plastike, u kojim će građani tokom cijele godine moći da selektivno odvojeni plastični otpad iz svojih domaćinstava donesu i tako pošalju na reciklažu“, najavila je Doljanica.

Budva Zero Waste City je nastavak i širenje ekološke priče započete 2018. godine kroz

Na budvanskim plažama i ove godine vijoriće se „Uhvati čist talas“ jarbol, označavajući lokacije na kojim posjetioci plaža mogu pravilno da odlažu plastiku i limenke.

  1. Please be aware!

    The Zero Waste Cities program created by Coca-Cola contributes to misinform citizen about what is truly a circular economy, and to discrediting the reputable program put in place by Zero Waste Europe – as explained below:

    Its program constitutes of 3 components:

    1 – “Print Your City” bringing a 3D printer to convert “plastic waste” into a few pieces of urban furnitures. This is called downgrading, it can only be done once, therefore it is not circular. Coca-Cola, Pepsi and Nestle produce all together more than half of the 186 billions plastic bottles put on the market every year. If we would print urban furnitures with all the plastic bottles they produce, we would drown under plastic benches in our cities.

    2- “Recycle at the Beach” which is a beach cleanup to ‘boost awareness for recycling and educate people on how to recycle’. Recycling is very low on the waste hierarchy, for a reason: recycling (meaning re-processing material into new ones) requires lots of water and energy to make and transport, and recycled plastic looses its quality through multiple cycles and can only be recycled a limited amount of time. The main goal of a cleanup should be littering prevention and awareness in reducing single-use plastic consumption.

    3 – “Interactive recycling and circular economy center” to educate people and schools on the values of the circular economy and a new approach to waste management. Which is a good thing, providing that this center will not be used to misinformed citizen on a false definition of circular economy – as shown in the 2 previous components of its program.

    Coca-Cola is therefore through its initiative trying to make it ‘ok’ to produce billions of bottles which will last for hundred of years in the environment and that are designed to be used only once. Coca-Cola is lobbying in every country against the return of Deposit Return Scheme, even for plastic bottles, which shows its will to outsource the pollution it generates to consumers/citizen and local government and not take any responsibility for it. As long as Coca-Cola produces packaging designed to be used ONCE and that last for centuries, it can not pretend to encourage a true circular economy.

    Zero Waste Europe and its 28 members are working or have been working with over 400 municipalities all over Europe that have taken on the challenge of the Zero Waste Masterplan. What defines a “Zero Waste Municipality” are the firm and verifiable commitments to move towards zero waste and the results which that delivers. Becoming a Zero Waste city is about changing the way waste are dealt with, starting with reduction of residual waste, increase in composting, increase in reuse of secondary material, and at least increase in recycling – with monitoring and evaluation of results throughout the implementation phase. It usually starts by implementation of door-to-door collection of sorted waste. The entire city and its citizen are involved in such transformation, and it can take months to years to implement. Giving a 3D printer to a city and organizing a cleanup does not make it a Zero Waste City.

    If Coca-Cola or the municipality of Budva are interested Budva becoming truly a Zero Waste city, we recommend you/them to read the Zero Waste Master Plan ( https://zerowastecities.eu ) and to contact Zero Waste Europe Municipalities program or Zero Waste Montenegro to discuss it. Until then, I would recommend the municipality of Budva as well as any respectful NGO’s to stay away from such partnership.
