    Although I don't eat some  peels such as banana or papaya peels, I put them in the compost bins.

    Plastic bottles filled with wrappings are commonly received by organizations to produce a new material: plastic bricks. Ideally, we should Reduce more than recycle, however in the "plastic era " this is a big challenge and it could be a temporary solution.

    I use to take reusable cups with me everywhere after feeling overwhelmed of  how much cups and disposables are used in restaurants.  I also take small wrappings and plastics to my recycle bins at home.

    I go with my neighbors every Saturday to make mulching and composting practices that help us reduce, reuse food and yard waste. We have added  native plants that have flourished attracting pollinating insects!

    The Biodigester Bale, also known as Silva Digester Bale, is a process that allows the biological degradation of organic matter into fertilizer, an organic material containing bioavailable nutrients for plants and organisms that benefit soil quality.
     The digester bales have become an alternative for the use of organic waste, which is gaining more and more strength in various cities of Colombia and is beginning to be implemented in other countries with great success.

    Be aware of the work-life balance and why my health is important: high quality and balanced food, physic activity, and good sleeping time. In my experience, 60 min of riding my bike early in the morning,  gives me a fresh energy and motivation for the rest of the day.
