Recycling

Taking part in the nationwide Cleaning up Mexico-campaign

We have implemented
permanent recycling programs in the surrounding communities for many years, through environmental education and practical and realistic solutions, creating through recycling a (small) source of income for the communities. Our recycling programs go hand in hand with our clean-up campaigns, for example all the plastic collected on the beaches, in the communities and by the roads during our campaigns, is recycled. We have also created, together with the El Raudal Eco Village, easily produced, practical containers for the communities to collect the plastic bottles from every household. These containers invented in El Raudal are now found in many surrounding municipalities and the idea is to teach more and more communities how to make them and use them, so that they too can make this positive environmental change and also find a small income through the sale of the plastic for the community.
