To take care of the nature that surrounds us, our beaches and seas, it is necessary to change our habits and incorporate all the actions that help us prevent and mitigate the effects of plastic pollution.
Reacting actively to this problem is the only way to contribute to a better future for generations to come.
REFUSE disposable plastic whenever and wherever possible. Choose items that are not packaged in plastic; carry your own bags, containers and utensils.
REDUCE your plastic footprint. Cut down on your consumption of goods that contain excessive plastic packaging and parts. If it will leave behind plastic trash, don’t buy it.
REUSE durable, non-toxic straws, utensils, to-go containers, bottles, bags, and other everyday items. Choose glass, paper, stainless steel, wood, ceramic and bamboo over plastic.
RECYCLE what you can’t refuse, reduce or reuse. Pay attention to the entire life cycle of items you bring into your life, from source to manufacturing to distribution to disposal.
PARTICIPATE in “Olas Zero Plástico” coastal clean-up initiatives and help to solve the ocean plastic crisis together.
separate to recycle
There are 7 types of plastic which are identified with a number from 1 to 7
and only some of them can be recycled. The recycling process is different for each type of plastic, so we must separate them before disposing of them at the nearest recycling point.
How to recycle plastic bottles?
All plastic bottles contain different plastics, which must be separated and put each part in its corresponding container.
