Every day I sort my waste and I go once a week, with the
recyclables, the recycling center that directs Mrs Margarita, in the community where I live, Jesus, Santa Barbara, Heredia.
This project is worthy of comment and support, since it is an example of nature protection and human solidarity, since the resources that are generated by the marketing of recyclable materials in the Center, are intended for communal dining that she has in her own home. In which receive lunch underprivileged children and vulnerable adults
Seems fair to highlight that work undertaken by this lady, for quite some time, no matter their age, certainly mature enough dedicates its time and effort on behalf of these vulnerable.
The other important part of comment is the support and protection of the environment, which means a project, such as coordinating this Lady. But from what I have seen few neighbors who collaborate with this project recycling and environmental protection, as the principal contributors usable materials are people from other communities who voluntarily bring the materials to the site, most of them using their own vehicles.
Moreover, it is unfortunate that in communities like this there is no environmental management plan and special collection of recyclable materials from
the local government, and as in many parts of the country, still continues to provide a traditional service with no waste collection previous classification, as the service should be offered, if we want to respect nature and protect natural resources.
Unfortunately there is little awareness of ordinary citizens to demand and support the classification and separation of waste.
Environmental education is a central theme that is supposed with great depth is included in the plans and programs of study at all educational levels in the country does not appreciate the fruits, and that young people and adults are not sees a radical change, and many of them ignore the environmental awareness campaigns, which unfortunately are seen depositing trash on sidewalks, streets, sewers, playgrounds, parks, among others.
How important and worthy of praise this initiative this lady and his collaborators, many of them elderly, who have embarked on this project, which not only has environmental, joined a humanitarian component, using the resources generated by the community recycling center, implemented in your own home.
