Green Association helps your ideas to bloom!
The association was established at the end of 2012 by a group of friends. What connects us is the love of nature in all its aspects. Our main goal is to promote non-standard solutions for environmental protection, and the tools we use strive to preserve our originality, authenticity and freedom. We rely mainly on personal money, donations and voluntary work.
YOU WILL FIND US BY THE SMELL
Heavy smell of fried stuff for the nose, but light for the consciousness – smell of free choice and clean environment! We changed the old diesel VW T2 minibus to run on filtered used oil, demonstrating an original and sustainable example of saving emissions, energy resources, waste and reusing apparently unnecessary materials. Eat our crunchy breakfast and move us a kilometer ahead!
YOU WILL ALSO BE SURPRISED BY OUR PEDWASHER…
A pedal washing machine that works flawlessly as long as there is someone to pedal. The everlasting in time and state governance Pearl 04 combined with mountain bicycle and home detergent elements definitely ensure a quality wash, which Aunt Maria would envy. Real fun and burning of calories comes with centrifugation when everyone worships the machine and is grateful that electricity exists.
OUR SOLAR STOVE ALSO MAKES AN IMPRESSION …
An old satellite dish covered with aluminum foil and a black saucepan with good insulation easily make the water boil, and we boil our blood with the joy that once again we will eat delicious veggies, prepared by the heat of the sun.
Supported projects by Green Association
In our quest to present and support sustainable models of social interaction, we have created for two years now a social center aiming at a shared workspace that supports the positive change in each of us. After realizing a number of activities at the local, national and international level, it…
I knew that I wanted the Green Project since the very first moment. It soaks your spirit and once you have experienced it, unavoidable you’ll want to be part of the change; WARNING: it becomes a lifetime experience.
I applied for the GVS ’cause I really liked the project description, but I did not expect such a rich experience.
It’s a total discovery from the beginning: the “colleagues”, the rapidly becoming friends, the country with its millennial culture and the astonishing environment – I barely knew the geographic position before landing there – the varied and stimulating activities.
I met many nice and in and interesting people from all over Europe, from the warm south of España to the cold Baltic Latvija, along with younger and older locals, and all of them shared with me something that made this experience unique.
No other experience I’ve had in my life so far, I mean so much from so many different points of view.
Being part of the green team was a great opportunity to discover and experiment a sustainable lifestyle in an inspiring atmosphere.
During this experience I grow a lot by sharing ideas and working together on projects that create and repair the bridges between nature and humans.
All the people and places I met on this project have shown green seeds on me that I happily spread wherever I go.
I’m looking forward to the next time our paths will meet.
My EVS in Bulgaria with Green Association was a full experience. It has been rich in adventures and new friends. And if I add new possibilities, new awarness and new open-mind it gave me, all of that makes:
EVS: Spain, Portugal, Sardinia, France and Bulgaria working together for a better society.
I met Aleko and the Green’s family for the first time in April 2015. I arrived in Bulgaria through the EVS project, with a big suitcase, a master degree on my shoulders, high expectations of it from my family, and. .. fear of inadequacy. But at the time I was 26 and dying for things to start happening to me! I remember almost every single day of my first month in Momin Prohod: the old house, the typical food, the beautiful nature around us, the Bulgarian lessons, the camp fires, our daily activities, our incredible magic bus … Aleko is a tireless dreamer, an example of “believe in yourself and be positive”, a point of reference. I’ll always be grateful to him and to Green’s family for showing me how beautiful the world is when it’s green colored.
Family, Friends & Fools
In the Green Association we are all volunteers, but we are often friends, too. Self initiative is of paramount importance because the cause that unites us is above all and everyone! To keep it clean and green it is important to have fun and support as friends!
