Pet owners buy so much pet food and it comes in big plastic bags. Often, these bags are bound for the landfill. "Fido Recycles Too" reuses these bags to create durable, reusable grocery bags simultaneously reducing the single use bags and reusing potential waste. In order for "Fido Recycles Too" to really make a difference, people need to know why single use bags are so detrimental to the environment. Therefore, this project will include an interactive educational display to be used in conjunction with the distribution of "Fido Recycles Too" bags. Local farmers markets, environmentally focused grocery stores, and the county fair will be the first venues for "Fido Recycles Too." Pet owners and non pet owners alike can help this project succeed, by reusing pet food bags and helping to educate the public.

The program is called "The Stray" (Adespotos in Greek) and the protagonist is a stray dog. The dog is a fingerpuppet that we use in the kindergarten and it symbolizes every stray animal on the streets of the city.The cartoonist Vaggelis Papavasiliou has also helped us with the program and he designed the picture of “The Stray”. The children in my kindergarten classroom have named themselves “the buddies of The Stray”. The program lasts throughout the year, and the Stray is involved in children's daily lives. Through the children the parents are involved too, which I consider as the best way for spreading the program’s goals.It is a cross-curricular program that is implemented through literary activities, visits to vets, contact with people active in the field of animal welfare (clubs), videos with animal content, as well as creating videos which raise awareness over the responsibilities of adopting of an animal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwFRPN2Bh44&t=92s One of the program actions is "The Bucket of the Stray" This is the reuse of the popular package of one kilo of yoghurt as a collection of family food leftovers and their promotion to stray animals.

This project will help rescued dogs find loving homes. We will do this by inviting people to come see the dogs on November 10th. They can get to know them and, possibly and hopefully, adopt one of the dogs.
