Objectives and successes of the mingas

This activity aims to help the community become aware of the amount of garbage that can be found everywhere in our natural environment.

 To understand how pollution affects us and to make us responsible for protecting our environment, as we are also responsible for environmental disasters.
Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of changing our consumption habits, lifestyle, and bad agricultural practices that seriously affect the natural environment and our health. Reducing single-use plastic and implementing alternative, ecological and organic methods in our agricultural practices are just some of the many suggestions to make everyday life more environmentally friendly and thus ensure the longevity of our only home, planet Earth.

With each minga we reach more people, and waste management has improved in some areas.

International day of the rivers

We regularly call for cleaning actions and follow the calendar of international environmental protection days. For the International Day of Rivers, various groups and organizations in the canton of Rioverde have organized mingas. Amigos Arbolito was invited to give a small speech to raise awareness in Lagarto and also actively participates in the various mingas.

International Coastal Cleanup Day

On the occasion of the International Day of Coastal Cleanup, we collected about 100 kilos of garbage in two hours in a minga on the beach of Peñas Blancas.

Together for the benefit of all

We organize the mingas together with our partners and allies from different communities and public and private organizations.
