Santo Antão: Major national events join the tile factory to “liberate” Cabo Verde from plastics

Porto Novo, June 24 (Inforpress) – The organization of large national events has been associated with the tile production factory in Penedo de Janela, in Santo Antão Island, in the task of “ridding” the environment in Cabo Verde of plastics.

This partnership, according to the direction of this unit, set up in 2017 by the Amigos de Paul Foundation in the Netherlands, began in August 2018 at the Baia das Gatas international festival in São Vicente, during which a “significant amount” of plastics were collected, which were later turned into tiles.

This began in June this year during the final of the national football championship in Sal, and is also happening in this same island, where the 2019 African Beach Games take place.

The plastic bottles collected during this international sporting event, which closes on Sunday, will be sent to the tile factory for the production of tiles.
