Why did Humana launch a project for urban social agriculture in Varna?
Many people know Humana as second-hand clothing stores. Most of them do not know that behind these clothing stores is the idea of developing and funding environmental projects.
That is why one of the main sources of funding comes from collecting, sorting and selling clothes and second-hand shoes. Through the re-use of textiles, Humana supports projects and promotes environmental protection by committing these activities to the three important “R” environmental programs:
Reduce: Reduce the amount of clothing;
Reuse: Use of clothes repeatedly;
Recycle: Recycle clothes that are in bad shape so they can be transformed into other products;
With funding generated by clothing, Humana funds international cooperation projects in areas such as education, health, social integration, agriculture, rural development and community development.
Why an Urban Agriculture Project?
• Through organic farming, we strive to involve people in the cause of limiting global warming through environmental practices;
