Project Report | Oct 25, 2021
Our Eco-Store is a SUCCESS!!!

By Catalina Ochoa | Executive Director

Our Eco store is a success! In this store we sell clothes and household products and the community exchanges with PET bottles, the money doesn't exist.  The community feels identified with this project since they manage to obtain a benefit from their garbage and at the same time they make their town cleaner.  

We serve monthly an average of 140 people in our warehouse. Additionally, we are working with the recyclers in the area to buy them the PET so we are be able to give to the garbage the proper disposal.  
 
This year we have collected 9 tons of recyclable material!!!   All this material is compacted to be sent to the final disposal plants that are 8 hours away by road. If not, this material would end up in the Ayapel swamp, contaminating the water and nature. 

Help us with your donations to continue collecting recyclable material so it doesn’t end up in our beautiful swamp
