In Kyiv's Shevchenkivskyi district, citizens turned a flower bed for vertical gardening into a garbage dump.

The flower bed is located on Sichovykh Striltsiv Street in the building of the Silpo supermarket, biologist Anastasia Glushchenko reports on Facebook.

The published photo shows that paper cups, food packaging, plastic bottles, cigarette butts, and other trash were thrown into the flowerbed.

Glushchenko's post on the social network caused lively discussions.

"The urns are indistinguishable from barriers. This is already a clinic. We need an announcement for children that this is a barrier," wrote dendrologist Volodymyr Vetrogradskyi.

User Larisa Yuzkiv promised to make an information board so that the townspeople do not confuse a flowerbed with a garbage can.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that in the Kyiv region near the village of Rozhny, in the Zazimska hromada, a large-scale dump of plant remains, construction and household waste, as well as barrels, probably with waste fuel and lubricants, was discovered in a field. The landfill is located near the road between the village of Litka and Brovary and borders the Zalissya National Nature Park.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, the eco-initiative "City of Living Walls" is "gaining momentum" in Kyiv, within the framework of which vertical greening is taking place with the help of Vichy grapes.
