"Tree day" in Macedonia
"Having in mind the bad condition of the forest fund, and in particular the catastrophic forest fires which occurred last year, we have started a citizen's initiative for afforestation in the Republic of Macedonia.
The purpose of this initiative is to plant more than 2 million tree seedlings corresponding to the population of the Republic of Macedonia in a single day, on March 12, 2008. The action shall be entitled « Tree day »"

My personal participation in this initiative and the green living is making a bag from plarn (plastic bag yarn). I crocheted this bag using plastic bags from the local market.
