This week, 149 schoolchildren get lesson in composting

foto curs compostThe Formentera Council's Office of Environment has teamed up with Amics de la Terra to coordinate the third round to date of composting workshops at the island's three primary schools in la Mola, Sant Ferran and Sant Ferran.

By offering tips on how to recycle and properly separate organic rubbish so it can be turned into fertiliser for gardens or local fields, the workshops aim to encourage 149 participating pupils to do their part in keeping waste out of landfills.

Juanjo Torres of Amics de la Terra facilitates the courses, part of Formentera's recently launched strategy on waste management which focuses on slashing the amount of rubbish treated on the island and thus skirting the environmental and cash burden of hauling it to the tip at Ca Na Putxa.

In its ongoing commitment to reach out to Formentera residents about the need for responsible waste disposal, moving forward the Council will roll out two additional composting workshops — this time for regular islanders.

The third day of the in-school composting effort will play out tomorrow (Thursday, February 22) from 9.30am to 11.30am at CEIP Mestre Lluís Andreu.
