Thanks to the participation of civil society, allies, donors, volunteers, and the media that deal with the environment, Fundación Hélice managed to rescue in Mexicali in 2021, more than 350 tons of urban solid waste such as paper, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, and electrical-electronic equipment.
As part of the celebration of World Environmental Education Day, the Foundation’s Operational Director, Patricia Dueñas Armenta, highlighted the importance of the educational work promoted by the Civil Association, because thanks to it, society is generating changes in habits essential in the management of waste, thus preventing it from ending up in landfills, generating more amounts of garbage and pollution.
The foregoing is the result of the work carried out through the training offered by Hélice for the general public, aimed at promoting sustainable practices that can be applied from home, school, or the workplace.
On the day of Environmental Education, this Civil Association invites you to reflect on the importance of promoting the teaching of environmental issues in all sectors of society, so that through this educational tool, we can put into practice the knowledge and implement campaigns for responsible management of solid waste, which include collection and recycling, as a shared responsibility in our consumption habits.
At Fundación Hélice, we are convinced that Environmental Education is key to making the best decisions in the face of diverse environmental problems and contributing to the objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, established by the UN (United Nations Organization), to which Mexico has joined.
