An activity themed on getting people to sort their household garbage to build beautiful homes together took place on Nov 5 in the Huizhancheng community of Guanshanhu district – located in Guiyang, capital city of Southwest China's Guizhou province.
Over 20 Party member volunteers from the Guiyang Bureau of Ecology and Environment distributed promotion materials on waste sorting, low-carbon lifestyles and the code of conduct for environmental protection.
Party member volunteers from the Guiyang Academy of Environmental Sciences and the city's monitoring station for energy conservation taught locals about the definition, collection and processing of household garbage. They also taught them the country's policy on household waste sorting and told them about Guiyang's efforts on garbage classification, with the aim of promoting waste sorting among the public.
The volunteers also presented information on peak carbon dioxide emissions, carbon neutrality and energy conservation – to encourage residents to lead a low-carbon life.
In addition, the volunteers got the residents to play a waste sorting game and awarded those sorting out the refuse in the correct way.
The activity aimed to popularize environmental protection and to raise public awareness of waste sorting and energy conservation via interactive games. It also tried to encourage public participation in waste sorting, as well as to get people to live a healthy and low-carbon lifestyle and make Guiyang a cleaner and more beautiful place.
