With the initiative of Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets, since 2010the humbled flowers at Armenian Genocide Monument have being gathered and used to undergo a special processing. Flower stalks are switches off the petals: compost is derived from the first part and the flower petals are used in preparing of recycled handmade paper. The compost is used to enrich the soil of Memory Alley at Tsitsernakaberd Memorial Complex, and the handmade papers for making letters of appreciation and cards.
Using special technology 40 sheet of paper is made out of one kilogram flower, which is called flower-paper.
This event serves to give a “second life” to the flower by recycling it by special treatment and use it again in another form. Many volunteers of non-governmental, representatives of international, private and public sectors, schoolchildren and students usually take part in this event.
