We donated many wheels, wheel-axes and other wheel-gear to students of Escola Artística e Profissional Árvore in Porto, that were reused for an academic project in order to build a lightweight and fast car powered by solar energy. These cars took part in a race called "Á Velocidade do sol", joining different schools - an initiative by AdEPorto - Agencia de Energia do Porto and its municipalities during the annual Energy and Environment Week.
The car "Grey" built by Rafaela Freitas Barbosa represented the Ávore school and finished in 4th place. Rafaela had been working as an intern at Precious Plastic Portugal, also supporting Replay.
