Type of Work: - Discover forests and green parks around the city and clean some spaces;

- Construct materials for everyday life (like ashtrays, pen holders, candle holders, plant pots…) and some musical instruments that will be used in an artistic show in the main street of Vila Real, presented to a big audience, reusing the waste.
