    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The use of glass and aluminum containers will be promoted among employees of Nation Group, after announcing that they plan to abandon the use of non-returnable plastic containers.  The first step is to remove all plastic from vending machines.

    According to Costa Rica Recycling , plastic represents 7% of the total weight of household waste and occupies 20-30% of the bins. Nation Group consumes about 3,500 disposable plastic bottles a month.

    Plastic requires between 500 and 1,000 years to degrade. In Costa Rica alone 8,000 disposable plastic bottles are used per minute, of which very few are recycled. In fact, throughout Costa Rica the recycling rate of all products is only about 10%.

    “Many of us have believed for years that recycling is enough. Nevertheless, in recent times environmental organizations  have struggled to prove that recycling is necessary, but not a solution to the problem of pollution that plagues our planet. We need to go further, we need to reduce, “said a representative.
