The beach of Monte Gordo and the Centro Azul on Quarteira beach will receive, starting this Tuesday, July 26, a giant board game about recycling.
“Do I need to wash the packages before putting them in the recycling bin?”, “I broke a mirror at home. Where do I put the glasses?” or “If we always recycle the paper we use, what raw material are we saving?” are some of the questions that will test the participants' knowledge.
The objective of “Recicla Mania” «is to help clarify doubts and teach good practices on waste separation, including the correct placement of packaging in ecopoints», says Sociedade Ponto Verde (SPV).
Its particularity is the fact that children and young people are the pawns of the game: after rolling the dice, they advance through colored houses (green, blue and yellow) where, in some, they will be challenged to test their knowledge about recycling, until reach the goal.
SPV's summer initiative reinforces its activities in the area of Education for Environmental Citizenship, focusing on raising awareness among young people of the importance of separating packaging at any time and in any place, in this case on the beach, one of the natural ecosystems that must be preserved.

27th and 29th, Quarteira beach – Centro Azul (Loulé) – 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
