Last December we started to install booths in the municipal markets. Because, in addition to providing us with food and household goods, markets form the mainstay of their districts, acting as a point of reference for their local residents. This is why the “Getting organic waste right” campaign continues to set up information points inside these markets.
Mercado de San Fernando was the first to welcome us for another campaign, as a platform to familiarise local residents with separating organic waste. Then came Mercado de Barceló, where we also enjoyed a warm welcome. During these first weeks, almost 1,000 residents have visited our booths and our educators have given out 844 organic waste kits.
Visitors were able to get answers to their questions about separating organic waste thanks to the information given by our team of educators. They also received our famous kit which includes a bin for easier separation at home, an information leaflet, a fridge magnet and the Orgánic@s magazine; they were also presented with a mini-organic waste bin for pencils, an infographic and municipal guides on separating waste.
To make sure that this information on organic waste reaches every district, these booths generally change location every two weeks. The team is working hard to be present in more districts: Latina, Villa and Puente de Vallecas, Usera, Villaverde, Tetuán, Carabanchel, Moratalaz, Chamberí, Arganzuela and Barajas.
