Trash is hitting the road in Panama!

Trash is hitting the road in the remote Darien region of Panama.

Recently, EcoLogic’s Program Officer for Panama, Yaira Allois, was in the Darien continuing to support and aid in the implementation of waste management plans that we helped the communities develop last year. Yaira conducted three workshops for community members with topics ranging from “Solid Waste Management at Home,” to “Crafting with Recycled Materials.”

Our work with these communities also involves promoting reforestation in degraded areas. In support of that effort, the town of Punta Lara is currently in the early stages of constructing a tree nursery. The nursery will house 10,000 seedlings and will be maintained in partnership with the School of Puerto Lara and Panama’s National Environmental Authority.

EcoLogic is working with communities to secure a sustainable, reliable future for their families. 

Thanks for your support!
