Formentera takes Green Flag challenge

The Formentera Department of Environment is pleased to report that this summer, one hundred local restaurants, cafes, pubs, seaside watering holes and outdoor hotel bars will take part in Ecovidrio’s Green Flag challenge — an initiative backed by Spain’s not-for-profit glass-recycling custodians in association with the Consell de Formentera.

The effort will see Formentera join 20 other Balearic municipalities as they attempt to move the needle on glass recycling. To make transport of the discarded glass easier, Ecovidrio is offering restaurant and hotel owners 23 bins. A special scoring system rates businesses’ commitment to recycling and sustainability and rewards increases in recycling.
