The students of the Colegio Napole�n Quesada in Guadalupe found a way to reuse the recycling materials, cardboard and paper.

These youngsters took their imagination to fashion and created rare and innovating designs out of recycling materials; the creation involved classmates, teachers and family members that committed to it since March.

This motivation was done with the purpose of celebrating the World Environment Day and exploiting the creativity held inside. The designs were presented to the student community and even to the press.

This kind of project helps to canalize the energy, help to raise kids with the habit of reusing and help to teach them to appreciate every attraction in Costa Rica along with every source of life given in the country and the world.

Tourists are more attracted than before to take travel deals to Costa Rica just to live this kind of attitude the country has taken. More foreign people choose Costa Rica as their destiny for any special occasion or just to walk away from their busy lives.

Little by little these activities will spread among the rest of the schools in the country through the MEP�s Programa de Convivencia Estudiantil and will create a chip change towards waste management to the new generations.

Kabidia Ram�rez is the coordinator of the Ecological Blue Flag Program in schools and assured that several recommendations will be given to the Colegio Napole�n Quesada to guarantee the environmental awareness even more.

"This activity can be part of an integrated waste management where all this suits� production are made ​​by the same residues that are occurring in the school and has a proper waste disposal after the fashion show" Ramirez said to

The fashion show from start to end has been a great step for the new generation�s education. It will open field to new ideas to improve the environmental care and place the Costa Rica tourism in a new level.
