recycle

  • Integrating the recycling of vegetal organic matter into the sorting of residual waste in a region where compost infrastuctrures are not yet in place.

  • Partnership with small poultry farmers in the region to give them our vegetable organic matter to feed their chickens.

RETHINK

  • Encourage and promote local products.

  • Set expectations for our participants about promotional gifts that most often end up being thrown away.
