CEV’s Green Way campaign inspires Maritza players

Plovdiv's Mayor Ivan Totev posed with Maritza players after a job well done
Plovdiv, Bulgaria, November 13, 2014 - Inspired by CEV’s new campaign Volleyball Way. Green Way, the players and staff of VC Maritza Plovdiv took part in a large-scale tree planting effort in their home town.

They joined Ivan Totev, mayor of Bulgaria’s second largest city Plovdiv, other politicians and celebrities, students and citizens at an event in the city's populous residential suburb Trakiya. Over 200 maple and ash trees were planted in one day to mark the beginning of an extension project for Lauta Park, which neighbours Maritza’s training hall. Mayor Totev also promised that a large adjacent area, which has turned into a wasteland, will be redeveloped as part of the park.

"This is a great initiative by the municipality and we decided to get involved," said Maritza’s manager Boris Halachev. "Indeed, we live in this city and we cannot remain indifferent to what is happening. I hope that we set a good example for our fellow citizens, to encourage more of them to join such events in the future. We are glad that the European Volleyball Confederation has decided to make a clear statement with its new campaign Volleyball Way. Green Way to promote a greener way of life on our planet and we are eager to support it."
