500 people will receive compost bins thanks to the NGO Ecoterra project together with the Regional Government

Promoting greater responsibility and citizen participation in the assessment of household waste is part of the objective of the NGO Ecoterra. Currently, they are executing the “Home Composting Network for the Coquimbo Region” project, an initiative financed by the Regional Government in collaboration with the Regional Corporation for Productive Development (CRDP) that will allow 500 people to receive compost bins for free.

During this day, the launch milestone was held, in which the exhibitors presented part of the work of the NGO Ecoterra, the regional reality and the impact that the execution of this fund will have on the residents of the Coquimbo region.

The beneficiaries will receive the composters and will participate in workshops that allow them to learn how to use them and raise awareness about caring for the environment. According to the Ecoterra NGO Project Coordinator, Manuel Díaz: “We are going to deliver 500 compost bins, hold participatory and educational workshops for people, and a composting kit and manual will be delivered that will allow us to educate and motivate the population, making them participants in this great problem that we face today, especially in the region.

Ana María Delgado is one of the beneficiaries of the project, who considers that this was a necessity for her: “I am going to use it very well… gathering all the vegetables and the compost will be useful for my little plants,” she said.

On the other hand, Carmen Rumimnott, who is also a beneficiary of this initiative, highlights the importance of raising awareness and caring for the environment. She indicated that “We are supporting our environment and contributing to making our air cleaner, thus cooperating with biodiversity.”

The project will have participants from the three provinces, seeking to expand the focus on raising awareness on this issue. Manuel Schneider, manager of the Regional Productive Development Corporation, highlighted that “this project focuses on raising awareness in communities, teaching them how to compost and promoting awareness about caring for the environment, as well as reducing waste.”
