Manacor said to be the first municipality of green commerce in the Balearic Islands

MANACOR claims to be the first municipality of green commerce in the Balearic Islands, as it is committed to responsible, local and waste-free consumption.
Together with the Rezero Foundation, it promotes a campaign to encourage purchases by the inhabitants of the municipality where they can make a purchase with sustainability criteria.
More and more people are adopting consumption models that are more respectful of the environment, which they buy without packaging, but to make this change it is necessary to be informed and to know the local shops that allow responsible consumption, without packaging or with the minimum associated waste.
For the first time in the Balearic Islands, companies will be identified as offering a sustainable offer and will confirm their commitment to reducing single-use items in order to certify them as Green Trade, a certification at no cost for companies and which began ten years ago. years in Catalonia and already has around 600 certified stores throughout the Principality.
From this Monday, October 25, a team of educators from the Rezero Foundation visited the shops and markets of the town certifying the establishments which offer local, fair trade or organic products and those which have reduced or replaced packaging, offering products in bulk and promoting the use of returnable packaging.
Those who meet some of these characteristics will be certified as a representative of Green Commerce and will be able to display a badge at the entrance to the establishments, while they will benefit from geolocation on the map of www.comercverd.rezero.cat and promotion on social networks.
In order to eliminate disposable packaging and encourage the use of reusable items for daily shopping, a responsible consumption guide will be designed with information, advice and alternatives for the public.
The Board of Manacor will also do everything in its power to reduce waste throughout the administration.
