AFRICA MIA
I just got a wonderful country, Namibia. There you will find the oldest desert in the world, formed by a sea of Red dunes towering, around 300 meters. a few White dry lakes where lie inert acacias resembling black skeletons in the dry Esplanade. It is a landscape that seems taken from a painting by Salvador Dalí and where the reddish leaves you mesmerized.

I was also in the natural park of Etosha, meaning the great white place. Here the landscape is varied, from desert to Savannah, passing through forests and large dry salt lakes. In addition, the numerous natural springs attract a variety of African wildlife. Both the sunrises and the sunsets are recorded in the retina and in the soul.

ORANGE MODE

As an easier way and practice of helping our recyclers in Bogota, comes this model successfully used in cities such as London and Montevideo. Recyclable waste are accumulated in Orange bags, so that they can be identified easily – in this way, do not need to break them or tear them. The bags come in a box; There are three kits and some include the dump and the payment of the home.

Recyclers working in this program receive training, help them to pay their social security, to better educate their children and will provide them with tools such as gloves and uniforms. It is a good way to contribute to the benefit of the life of 20.000 recyclers.
