Clean-Up Day at Mburicaó Stream

Clipping.

More than 500 people began this morning the clean-up day at the outflow of Mburicaó stream outflow as part of the “Revive” campaign.

This is the second edition of the stream clean-up day in the Tablada de Asunción neighborhood. Cleaning is organized by Athena Foods together with volunteers from the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MADES).

They stressed that the purpose is to raise awareness about the importance of keeping beds clean by not throwing trash on them. "Strategic thinking guides companies, but their green thinking is what integrates them with their community." 

Days ago, they also undertook a clean-up on the banks of the Paraguay River in the city of San Antonio along with public, private, and civil society institutions. “In this joint effort were collected 30,000 pounds of waste that were exposed due to the historical decline of the water channel,” according to MADES information.

This action is promoted at the national level by the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MADES), the First Lady of Paraguay's office and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), involving the public and private sector through awareness, action and inclusion.
