More than one million bags of snacks were collected by the community and raised $ 80,597.50 pesos
The integral teaching center “Enseñando a caminar por la vida A.C.” (ENCAVI) located in the city of Merida, specializes in teaching children with disabilities to perform in various daily activities, which are performed in a healthy, safe environment And improving the quality of life of the beneficiaries. In addition, it teaches them values as important as care for the environment.
For some years, the ENCAVI, committed to the environment, has decided to carry out campaigns and agreements with the parents to collect the snack bags that were consumed.
The Integral development center with the help of TerraCycle Mexico and its idea of eliminating waste through its snack bag recycling program led a series of campaigns and agreements in support of parents.
The commitment was present both in the administrative and in the parents, as the result of these actions was reflected in the 1,611,950 bags of snack that were collected until December last year. The garbage was collected in a warehouse where it was stored, emplayaba and sent to be recycled by TerraCycle who receives the garbage delivering points for it.
The garbage collection of the last 6 months collected enough points to raise the sum of $ 80,597.50, which will be used to improve the facilities and purchase material for use by the beneficiaries.
While positive results have been achieved for vulnerable groups and the planet in the harvesting campaigns, more people need to be involved in these programs to promote recycling and environmental care, as well as helping many others who lack the economic resources to purchase basic goods for their quality of life, for this there are also more recycling programs such as oral care products, soaps, cookies bags, bread wraps and sweet bread, these programs are completely free for those interested in collecting their trash and benefit different nonprofit associations.
The purpose of TerraCycle is to Eliminate the Idea of Waste®. We do this by creating a national recycling system for
wastes previously considered “non-recyclable” or “difficult to recycle”.
Anyone can sign up for these programs, called Brigades, and start sending their waste. For each package collected, TerraCycle provides a cumulative economic incentive, which is donated to non-profit organizations. To participate simply log on to www.terracycle.com.mx or call 01 800 681 1589
