The official opening of the Recycling Exhibition Make the Earth Smile by Nargis Publishing House took place on September 9th at Baku Seaside Boulevard.
The Nargis Publishing House organized an ecological exhibition dedicated to the problem of environmental protection. Within the framework of the project, eight art sculptors presented 13 installations from industrial waste. The exhibition was timed to the release of the 63rd issue of the Nargis magazine, dedicated to the "Ecology" theme. On the cover of the magazine is the founder of IDEA Leyla Aliyeva.
The Nargis team are people who are not indifferent to the environment. Nargis supports ecological brands, saves natural resources, and feels responsible to use the platform with a wide readership to raise awareness about how much each of us can do to save the Mother Earth.
The eco project Make the Earth Smile comprises 13 art installations reflecting 13 critical spheres of human life, in which human particularly harms the Earth. The aim of the project is to teach the young generation a new lifestyle, which eventually will lead to positive impact. Nargis brochures, which describe 13 useful habits that each of us should establish to help the environment, were distributed at the exhibition.
