With up to 83.1 kilos of glass recycled per inhabitant, Formentera boasts highest recovery rate in the Balearics

foto 2022vi ecovidrioIn 2021 the people of Formentera recycled up to 83.1 kg of glass per inhabitant, the highest recovery rate in the Balearic Islands according to data collected by Ecovidrio. Last year, with the region-wide total tally of 42,839 tonnes of recycled glass packaging waste, or 36.5 kg per capita, the Balearics are leading the nation, says Ecovidrio.

The Formentera Office of Environment backs Ecovidrio's Green Flags push to reward the local hospitality industry for recycling glass containers and joining the fight to stop climate change. Antoni Tur, councillor of environment, underscored the importance of "campaigns like this that help to raise awareness of recycling among the population and businesses". Tur pointed out that "the administrations must work along these lines to reduce waste generation and recycle as much as possible".

180 participating businesses

A total of 180 restaurants and bars on the island have already joined the initiative that aims to reward the island's dining establishments and sustainability activism in summer, particularly with respect to proper waste management. As part of the campaign, Ecovidrio will also launch the very first Balearic Barometer of Sustainable Hospitality, awarding the Balearic establishment most committed to the circular economy and protecting our environment.

Juan González shows his photographs at "Ajuntament Vell"

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that from 28 June to 9 July, the "Ajuntament Vell" will host the exhibition Diàleg entre el vent i la mar by Formentera resident Juan González.

The exhibition, the third collection of photographs displayed at the municipal gallery in 2022, evokes the sea through images. The Valencia-born photographer presents bits of the landscapes that surround us in large-format snapshots alongside portraits that act as sculptures. Diàleg shares an attentive look at the relationship between individual and environment.

The title of the exhibition is a nod to the last movement of La mer by French composer Claude Debussy. Similarly, González highlights "the result of the confrontation between antagonistic forces: the battle between the wind and the sea".

The exhibition will open Monday 27 June at 8.00pm and can be visited at Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" Monday to Saturday from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

The gallery is closed on Sundays, holidays and Monday mornings.
