The primary school children of Las Torres de Cotillas have proven to be great 'Little Recyclers'.
And in the final part of the year they participated in the contest of an environmental awareness and education campaign, in which the Torreño City Council collaborated, whose main objectives were to teach them to recycle glass containers, as well as create the habit of doing so and show them the environmental benefits that this entails.
"Our students have been in second position, with 6'4 kilos recycled per participant, only behind Abanilla. In addition, during the campaign proposals were planned as plays and activities in the street to support this initiative," explains the Councilor for Education, Rafael Martínez García, who attended the awards ceremony on Wednesday, February 12.
An act that took place in the Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Environment, which was attended by the counselor of Antonio Luengo and the general director of Environment Francisco Marín, as well as representatives of Torreño schools.
Susarte (October) and Maestro Jesús Ferrer (November) schools were the winners of the contest at the local level, so they received a check valued at 100 euros for school supplies.
"It is essential to raise awareness among our neighbors that the respect for the environment begins with ourselves, for tasks such as recycling our waste. Campaigns like this, where children learn in a fun way, are very appropriate," explains the Mayor Torreño, Joaquín Vela Fernández.
