  1. Reduce

You must take into account that you must generate less garbage, and use less plastic.

San Pedro La Laguna, a town of Sololá, is an example of prohibiting the use of plastic bags, straws and duroport.

  1. Reuse

It is important to extend the life span of the materials, some may be given a second use or look for another type of operation.

The Hospicio San José, in search of creating a park for the children who inhabit it, used tires with different purposes.

Separating solid waste such as paper, cans, glass or other is important.

There are different recycling centers in Guatemala where you can take material such as paper, cardboard and others so that they can be recycled and used again.

  1. Reject

Find out more about the manufacturing processes of what you consume and try not to use products that are harmful to the environment.
