Ecovidrio will transform the glass containers deposited in the containers into a donation to the Sandra Ibarra Foundation The councilors of the Environment and Social Policy, Juan Gil and Antonio López, accompanied by the president of the AECC in Jumilla, Dami Herrero, as well as members of the association, have presented this afternoon the 'Recycle glass for them' campaign launched by the City Council of Jumilla and Ecovidrio on the occasion of the International Day against Breast Cancer that is celebrated on October 19. The initiative aims to mobilize citizens to recycle glass containers to take care of the environment and at the same time contribute to research against breast cancer.
During the next few weeks, two pink igloos will be located in Paseo Poeta Lorenzo Guardiola.
Ecovidrio will transform the glass containers deposited in the containers into a donation to the Sandra Ibarra Foundation for Solidarity Against Cancer. The campaign has spread to 140 cities throughout the national territory.
Furthermore, as a symbol of awareness and solidarity with breast cancer, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada has designed a special miniglu for the occasion, in which the Sandra Ibarra Foundation motto stands out: "Full of life." It can be purchased through the website www.miniglu.es and the profits will also go to this foundation. Next Monday 19 will be placed on the balcony of the City Hall the pink ribbon that symbolizes the fight against the disease.
At night the façade of the Town Hall and the Plaza del Camionero Juan Soriano will light up in this same color.
