Young volunteers from Xiamen, a city in southeast China's Fujian Province, recently won acclaim from local citizens for spreading knowledge about how to classify different types of commercial waste.

Yao Yuxin, 3, has taken part in five voluntary activities, along with her mom. "By participating in the activity, I hope my daughter can have a clear understanding about how to classify garbage and the importance of protecting the environment," Yao's mom said.

Schoolboy Wang Engui, another volunteer who visited a shop in the local area on August 6, said to the owner: "Please scan our QR code to receive more information about garbage classification."

Wang's father stated he had learned garbage classification knowledge and told his son what kinds of garbage are usually thrown away by businessmen before they visited various shops.
