Thus, the winner of the “Ecoblogger” candidacy was the head of the ecological project “Garbage in a cube” Sakhayana Khoyutanova.

“Our work is an art installation in the form of a transparent glass cube. Its purpose is to make every person who passes by the object think about how to start living in an environmentally friendly way, and this is not so difficult. The name of the project means that we decided to build the garbage problem not in a square, but in a cube. We have specially selected a family that for a certain period of time collects its dry garbage and dumps it in our cube. Thus, the cube is a mini-polygon. Next, we will select a share of recyclables from the total volume of garbage and place it again in the cube, which will already be half empty. “We want to show that if every person follows an ecological way of life, then our cube will be empty,” said the environmental activist. The art object is now located in the Yakutsk city culture and leisure park.

The city of Vilyuysk became the best ecological municipality, where this year was declared the Year of Ecological Initiative and Gardening.

We planted many trees, including apple trees, created a free eco-park for children where we keep pets and improved the playgrounds and the city park. “But the biggest project in the city of Vilyuysk was done to clean scrap metal,” said Nyurgustan Afanasyev, the mayor of the city.

Collaborators of the action this year were the diamond mining company ALROSA and the Environmental Security Fund of the Far East. According to Ladimir Argunov, Head of the Department of Labor with the State Authorities of ALROSA, the development of the environmental education and enlightenment system is one of the most important areas of work for the company’s environmentalists.

For this reason the company supports the activities of the Far East Environmental Security Fund.

He also reminded that ALROSA constantly monitors the natural environment in the production and adjacent areas, allocating more than 90 million rubles annually for it.
