Last Thursday the 3rd edition of the Rezero Balearic Awards was held, an award that demonstrates the transformative power of waste prevention actions promoted in the Balearic Islands that can serve as inspiration for other initiatives.
The Rezero Awards aim to reinforce initiatives that move towards Zero Waste, distinguishing 4 categories: administration, commerce, entity and company. Local and ecological food production, the elimination of single-use products, bulk sales, distribution in returnable packaging, repair and reuse are circular strategies that give value to products, materials and resources in order to keep them in the economy for as long as possible, reducing waste generation and the impact of the extraction of new materials. Strategies that, in today’s uncertain times, inspire new opportunities, save resources and can generate a wide range of jobs.
Rewine, a project supported by Mallorca Preservation that aims to promote the reutilisation of wine bottles in Mallorca, was also presented during the Rezero Balearic Awards 2022.
