#COLOMBIALIMPIA Beach Collection Day 2021
CEMPRE Colombia teamed up with ASPPIRe for a massive beach clean up in Cartagena. The team collected over 3000 pounds of waste from the clean-up site. More than 50% of the material collected was plastic waste.
Project ASPPIRe works with informal sector waste collectors to support their well-being while keeping plastics out of our ocean.
CEMPRE is working actively to initiate the formalization of the plastic sector by working with cooperatives, aggregators, and plastic processors.
