The 28th Eco Action LJUBLJANICA 2019
The Society for Underwater Activities Vivera and the Slovenian Diving Association (SDA) re-join forces to organize the 28th ecological and cleaning campaign LJUBLJANICA 2019 on Saturday, 20 April 2019. As the main supporter, SPAR Slovenia joined the campaign for the second year in a row, also being the eco-sponsor of the SDA. Within the framework of its campaign Think ECOlogical, SPAR is committed to sustainable management and promotion of reducing the plastic bags consumption.
The cleaning action, which takes place each year on the Earth Day, will start at 9 a.m. at the BARJE Fishing House in Ljubljana, and end at 2 p.m. in the vicinity of Three Bridges (Tromostovje) in the city centre. The event organizers invite all those who want to contribute to the protection of the originality of nature and the cleaner Ljubljanica river and its shore to join. The cleaning program will be accompanied by a cultural program on the Cobblers’ Bridge (Čevljarski most) with Urška and the Water Man playing the main roles.
