One-third of the children in Hungary live in unhealthy, damp, moldy homes. This is often because of doors and windows that are not insulated properly, but many families cannot afford to have them replaced. What can you do if you can’t afford to buy new windows, but you have had enough of having to heat the street? With the method of Ökoszolgálat, the draughty doors and windows of a home could be insulated for up to ten years, with a cost of only a few thousand Forints. Anyone can contribute to the initiative even with a little money, giving long-term support to underprivileged families. 

The new restaurant in Pécs has been operating for a couple of months, almost always with a full house.

So what is the secret recipe of the „Colourful Pearls” Association? 

New mums have celebrated the disposable diaper for decades, as it liberated them from the nightmare of having to wash poo-stained cloth ones. But nothing lasts forever. At the Hungarian Sustainability Summit, TETT Jövőnkért Association has won the Ozone Green award with its community building initiative that promotes cloth diapers, titled “Textilmami”. We asked Éva Janó, a staff member of the association about how 21st century mums can be convinced to start washing diapers again.
