What is the recycling process?

The recycling process begins at home. It is very easy!

We have to separate the garbage at home and to do this, we need two trash cans: one for recyclable wastes and another for non-recyclable wastes.

In the trash can for recyclable wastes, you throw: paper, metal, plastic and Tetra Pak packages. In the other, you throw, for instance, leftovers and what is left after cleaning.

You know Tetra Pak packages well, since they protect the milk, the juice and the tomato sauce you consume. Tomorrow, they can become something else, while they protect nature.If you do not have a nearby bottle collection center, you can separate them all the same and take them to the collection centers located at Jumbo supermarkets, to the San Isidro Recicla program, to the collectors of paper and cardboard, or you can also find out about recycling programs held by the municipalities.

How do I prepare extended shelf life packages for recycling at home?

Renewability and FSC certification

Climate change is showing that breaking nature laws is risky and that we must work in harmony with it. This is the reason why we have to look for alternatives to use more renewable materials –whenever possible– and more renewable energy.

The raw material used to make paper and cardboard is extracted from trees, which are a renewable resource. We make this clear because some are chopped down and others are planted in order to ensure the existence of trees in cultivated woods. The important thing is to afforest and to never chop down trees from natural woods and forests.

To distinguish the raw material that comes from managed forests, which are suitable for this end, from the one extracted from natural forests (where felling is forbidden) there is a certification. The FSC stamp guarantees the proper origin of paper because it means that the raw material comes from responsibly managed woods that are controlled. Therefore, you can be sure that forests are being protected!
