Mrs.S, Ploiești. She was a dental technician, an activity that she replaced as much as she could with trips, going to the movies, or to spa treatments. She is the most active in her group of friends, although her possibilities are limited. She reinvents leftover foods so she doesn't throw them away. dries her herbs from the garden, and donates clothes she doesn't wear anymore.
Mr.B, Bucharest. He has worked in print, radio and television. Today he is the president of the block association and has a mission to make it work as efficiently as possible - he installed sensors, energy-saving light bulbs and a recycling system on every floor. He lives in Bucharest, but has a holiday home in the mountains, where he holds the majority of the pickle jars.
Mrs.M, Brașov. Even though she is retired, she still works to make ends meet, supplement her income and stay active. She only buys seasonal food, with which she stocks up on broth, pickles and jam, or she freezes them for sauces or cakes during winter.
Mrs.C, Bucharest. She used to work in commerce and now she is still working in a natural products company. She likes to know she has something to do every day. She doesn't throw away anything that can be reused. The casseroles and bottles are used to send food to loved ones and to store various things in the house or in the fridge. Because there is no selective waste collection point nearby, she sends all the plastics or bottles that she no longer uses to her countryside house
