Garden benches and mobile flower beds were donated to the Home for the Elderly in Malešice.
At the beginning of this year, the Czech City of Prague made a commitment to extend the life of Christmas trees by recycling them and transforming them into furniture for social facilities.
As such, it announced that students in the field of carpentry from the Jarov Secondary Vocational School would use their skills to help the city achieve its sustainable goals.
An innovative and sustainable city
In a press release by the municipality, Mayor Zdeněk Hřib commented on the students’ efforts:
“Even around Christmas, the tree made passers-by happy in the Old Town Square. Now, thanks to the skillful students of the Jarov Secondary School, it has been used to create specific products which, I believe, will serve clients of the Home for the Elderly in Malešice for many years. It is thus not only an effective use and transformation of already existing material but also a nice symbol of connecting generations.”
