A competition to see which municipality recycles the most
The initiative has been set up with a somewhat competitive background. In fact, it is intended to awarding the Green Flag to the municipality of the island that shows the greatest commitment to the protection of the coastline throughout the summer period.
As an incentive to the catering establishments, those most committed to the cause will receive an master class by the distinguished chef Quique Dacosta.
It should be noted that summer is a difficult time for recycling, as this is the time of the year. is only performed on 1/3 of all recovered material.. In addition to this, there is the possibility of strike among landfill workers.
Of course, tourism and the consequent increase in consumption of products can also damage the balanced ecosystem of the island.
Because of this, in Ibiza Sostenible we have always defended the tourism with guarantees of sustainability y respect for the environment.
