Smokinya Foundation Newsletter

Last year gave us lemons, we are collecting limes these days, and we decided to bombard you with both!

We are introducing you to the Smokinya Show!

In the first episode the main topic was Good health and wellbeing, but together with his guest Vlad Fedoroff, Vladan touched many other related topics. We asked citizens of Plovdiv what is the healthy lifestyle during the global pandemics. Our previous volunteer Radostyna also shared her experience in Bulgaria.

The second episode of the show was about Sustainable communities and zero-waste movements. Vladan and Vera discussed reusable products and recycling. Citizens of Plovdiv shared their opinion about recycling and Maryna Klochkova shared her experience in Bulgaria.
