Dobighat, April 2, 2014 – Coming Saturday, on April 5. Animal Nepal will open its gate for its first Monkey Mela. The festival celebrates animals and the environment. The mela will be organised each first Saturday of the month from 1-5 pm at our office. The next one is scheduled for May 10.
The Mela promotes green innovations which can easily be adopted at home. The festival features Animal Nepal’s ongoing Garage Sale for a Better World, ‘upcycling’, workshops for children, puppy adoption drive and Kathmandu’s first ever Mongolian yurt.
The second hand goods vendors will be joined by creative, responsible entrepreneurs, who turn waste materials or useless products into beautiful items. Bottles to Beads, Ishine and Animal Nepal are among the producers.
Under the guidance of Sony KC and Coralie Muller, children can learn to do some upcycling of their own, or practice zoomba dancing.
There will be great vegetarian food, some of which can be enjoyed in a comfortable traditional yurt or ger, imported and produced by Green Architects.
The income of Monkey Mela goes to needy animals treated by Animal Nepal. You find our office here on google maps.
