The Recicla Escuela (School Recycling) program, supported by Fundación Avina and led by the organization VERSE, trained 200 children and 3 teachers from an under-resourced school in Santiago on the importance of inclusive recycling.

The program also installed a recycling system in the school to collect PET, aluminum, and paper, which to date has recovered about 130 pounds of recyclable material.

These materials are then donated directly to a local recycling cooperative, Cooperativa de Recicladores de La Reina (CREACOOP).
