The project was concluded by the Arenales Homeopatianimal Project and was carried out with the help of the Sesi (Social Service of Industry), a unit of Vila Real, in Presidente Prudente (SP).
The initiative aims to stimulate the recycling habit of more than 700 students, among children and adolescents who study at school. Every end of the semester they count on an award offered by Arenales, as a way of benefiting students who are more committed to collecting recycled materials.
It works like this: first there is a work of raising awareness with students about why it is important to recycle. Once the materials are taken to school, Arenales looks for what can be recycled and stored in the Eco Point of the company that is open to the population of the West Zone of Prudente.
When a large volume of materials is already accumulated, Cooperlix (Cooperative of Collectors of Recyclable Materials of Presidente Prudente), makes the correct destination. The initiative, besides helping the environment, also contributes in the social aspect, since the cooperative increasing what is collected, automatically raise the profits.
Arenales always encourages this interaction between students and co-workers, aiming to ensure that the children and adolescents participating in the Project grow knowing the importance of recycling.
This year 25 tons of recycled materials were collected between pet bottles, aluminum cans, cardboard boxes and others, surpassing the volume of last year. Students were awarded bluetooth speakers, plus a fun day with barbecue.
