Yellow happy people return to Granadilla
After the success of the Yellow Happy People project in the last school year, Granadilla is to repeat the initiative.
The second edition, organised by the local council through its public company Sermugran, aims to promote the selective collection of packaging among almost 4,000 students of secondary education institutes and to sensitise the youth collective about the need to recycle.
The Mayor, José Domingo Regalado, said the initiative, financed by Ecoembes, the non-profit organisation that manages the recovery and recycling of plastic containers cans and cartons (yellow container) and packaging cardboard and paper (blue container) throughout Spain, will last until the month of June and will include an important number of educational workshops and educational activities that aim to encourage the youngest to practise recycling.
Vice president of Sermugran, María Candelaria Rodríguez said the collection of packaging by Sermugran and the use of the yellow container “influences not only the environment, but has a clear economic effect for Granadilla de Abona. That is why we intend to reward the effort made by young people through the organisation of activities, talks, contests and other actions that will end with a party in each of the educational centres.”
