    Garbage, being something inherent in human activity, is generated without interruption.

    Since we are all producers of waste and garbage, it is important that intelligence is put at the service of becoming aware of the seriousness of the problem.

    It is important that each one of them seeks to be better informed in order to have a greener behavior, a more circular consumption of (recyclable) packaging, at home and abroad.

    September 15 is World Cleanup Day.

    For those who are still enjoying the beach, it is suggested that you participate in a joint cleaning action on any beach.

    85% of the trash found there is plastic.

    If there is no such will, the simple act of depositing the garbage itself in the corresponding containers (undifferentiated, plastic, paper and glass) contributes to the reduction of the ecological footprint.
