Successfully completed a large action of cleaning on the Vrmac mountain
As a sign of the celebration of Earth Day, the action of cleaning mountain Vrmac was completed today with incredible success. The action included cleaning fire-fighting roads and hiking trails, as well as collecting waste from the slopes of the Tivat and Kotor sides. The trail Lepetane-Orašje and Plavda-Orašje was cleaned by the teams of the Tivat Protection Service with the voluntary fire brigades from Tivat and Boka. The Pod Kuk – Gornja Lastva trail was cleaned by members of the Triathlon Club Herceg Novi and Kotor and the mountaineering club “Vjeverica”. From the big hut on the Vrmac plateau, 56 volunteers headed in 5 directions in the action of cleaning the waste, of which the most difficult location was right next to the Škaljari fortress, primarily due to the large number of tires. 10m3 of waste was collected. The volunteers were primarily young people from the NGO Naša akcija, the Tivat Youth Team and the Knightsbridge School, but were also joined by families from both cities. The action was organized by the Municipality of Tivat, the Municipality of Kotor and the NGO Naša akcija, with the support of Porto Montenegro and the Tourist Organization of Tivat, as well as utilities of both cities.
The NGO Naša akcija initiated this activity as part of the program “Nature for the mental and physical health of young people” supported by the European Endowment for Democracy.
We thank all the participants and volunteers who dedicated their day to Vrmac.
