The Panhellenic Educational Recycling Competition at Secondary Education Schools and Sports Academies "Recycle and meet Giannis Antetokounmpo!" ended with unprecedented success.
Students and athletes aged 12 to 18 from all over Greece participated in the Grand Competition and recycled more than 3,000,000 items of packaging, achieving a new Panhellenic Record!
For the first time, alongside schools, sports academies from all over the country responded to the call of the National Collective System REWARDING RECYCLING and recycled plastic, metal and glass packaging material to the "Rewarding Recycling Kiosks" and the "Environmental Education and Rewarding Recycling Parks" at Agioi Anargyroi and Lagkada in Thessaloniki.
