Once upon a time on a distant
and tall mountain somewhere
in Greece, there was a
beautiful and green forest full of
beautiful wildflowers and happy

All, the friends together started walking to Daisy's house.
Suddenly, as they were walking, they heard a strange noise.

the garbage that
filled the forest
As they were walked, they heard a voice calling for help.
It was Aros the hedgehog who was trying to clean a big
garbage from his back thorns and did not manage it.
All together, the friends ran to Aros to see what was
happening. Please help me

The friends helped him and Daisy the turtle, who in the meantime
heard Aro's voices, join to the company and took the rubbish
from his thorns.
After that the animals, decided to go and meet Mrs. Sofia the
old plane tree. Mrs. Sofia was a very wise tree since she was over
400 years old.
Her branches had seen many beautiful but also bad things that
have happened in the woods all these years.
So they started walking all together to the river, where the
roots of Mrs. Sophia just spread. The whole
group approach Mrs. Sofia and …
They told her about the problems they have with the rubbish.
Mrs. Sofia said that she agreed with them. She told them that
how beautiful and
clean the forest was when she was a young tree.
She was missing old days. A lot of her plant friends weren't living
A lot of her animal friends had migrated. Tears streamed down
from her face.

I remember my favorite friend's
family of the bear. There have
been several years since the last

because they could not live here.
Where are they?

I know a group of children who
love the forest and often come.
They play, they laugh, and I
laugh with them too! Surely if we
talk to them they will help us....
The animals went to school to find volunteers who would
help clean the forest, but only three children accepted to
help. They went to the woods and met Mrs. Sophia, the oak

Carina and Paul went back to the village as fast as they could.
They alarmed the police and the ambulance and their parents.
Friends of the parents came with them to help.
So a large group of adults went to the cave to help Betty.
On the road they saw the forest and began to understand
Oh, how much
trash here around
in the forest
It is awful!
We have to
They arrived the cave , rescued Betty and
thanked the Nymphs of the forest.
On their way back all were talking about all the trash in the forest.
The coming Sunday almost all inhabitants oft he village met in front
of the church. Then Betty said:
Thank you for helping me.
You all saw how awful it
looks in the forest.
WE HAVE TO CLEAN IT!
that's what the Nymphs
told us. Otherwise we will
lose all animals
And so it happened. All children and their parents went to
the forest and did a very large cleaning action.
Also they decided to make rules about the trash,
about fire in the forest and how to
behave well to have a clean and healthy surrounding
where all animals and humans can live together.
Children also convinced adults that they should take
responsibility for waste. They all managed to make the
forest clean again. The key is to work all together. No
miracles happen if we do not try all of us together!!!!
