Meeting ECCE Zamora
On May 19th, it took place in Zamora (Spain) one of the events about Circular Economy organized by the European Commission. Ecocuadrado attended this meeting where different new opportunities and funding programs were exposed.
The meeting had three principal focuses:
- Ecologic growth: what made us grew in the past is not a sustainable system.
- Prioritization of sectors related to Circular Economy: those which hierarchy starts with plastics, food waste, biomass, construction and demolition, and fundamental raw materials.
- Product eco-design: focused on a smart design from the point of view of production, but also from the point of view of dismantling to facilitate re-use.
In this way, with these three action lines, Circular Economy and Zero Waste are boosted, decreasing the amount of waste ended up in landfills and promoting its re-introduction into the value chain as a resource of raw materials.
On the occasion of this event, and in collaboration with FMCircular, The European Commission and Zamora’s Council, EcoCuadrado was charged to promote used CDs and DVDs’ collection with three special boxes. For that, we converted three old refrigeration boxes (TKT) in nice vinyled bins. Those where located in three different spots in the city in order to let the citizen dispose their old DVDs and CDs gathered at their homes. In such a way we guarantee their adequate management through our system of Green Destructions
On the other side, some of these CDs are reused to build spectacular, decorating hanging flowerpot holders that decorated the event, and a water lily build out from these CDs, where some bioremediation plants were attached with the aim of purify Duero river
We will share soon the results of this collection campaing, and we kindly encourage other cities to come on this challenge #bringyourCDs (#traetusCDs)
