Enhancing the work of community participation in municipal activities, generating values of solidarity, helping others and environmental awareness.
How: To collect the bottles held a glass recycling campaign in all municipal schools in the district which mustered about 19,000 units of 1,000 bottles met by donations from private individuals. For the preparation of the tree is used about 4,000 units.
