During the Charity Carnival, each non-profit organization put up tents and created a ‘green’ fair. Shanghai Roots & Shoots introduced the Dragon Recycling Program, whose aim was to minimize the wastes and carry out the principle of environmental protection. The Program has been supported by China Environmental Protection Foundation.

Citizens were encouraged to donate their waste toothbrushes, electronic wastes and so forth. Besides, during the Orienteering, by asking the participants such questions as ‘how long does it take for glass products to naturally degrade’, Shanghai Roots & Shoots further promoted its belief. After the carnival, 24.2 kilograms of electronic wastes were collected in total and were sent to relevant recycling organizations.

The Charity Carnival was successfully held, which indicated that more and more people in Shanghai were taking an active part in charitable activities. Likewise, Shanghai Roots & Shoots will also make its continued endeavors to create a better and greener environment.
