Inclusive campaign promoting recycling and environmental protection

“It is not only a campaign, it is a collective and inclusive movement” – is the motto that led Environmental Global Facilities (EGF) and its 11 concessionaires to develop a movement to change environmental behaviours, which includes the reorganisation of ecopoints, in order to promote recycling among disabled citizens.

More than 783,000 ecopoints from North to South of Portugal will have a new order always the same way, from left to right - blue, green and yellow. In this way, blind or visually impaired citizens will always know which container is for each type of material. This action is expected to be completed in February 2021.

“With this initiative, we not only want to have more citizens recycling, but we also want them to recycle better and for that we have to be more inclusive. The campaign - The Future of the Planet - is the biggest awareness movement, because we can be the engine of a necessary and urgent change”, said Emídio Pinheiro, President Administrative Councils of EGF.

In addition to the ordering of ecopoints, the recycling code currently present is now available in audio description. Blind and visually impaired citizens can now hear these rules available on the EGF website or hear the campaign announcement in this format, according to a press release sent to The Portugal News.

The 11 concessionaires envolved are Algar, Amarsul, Ersuc, Resiestrela, Resinorte, Resulima, Suldouro, Valorlis, Valorminho, Valnor and Valorsul.
