‘Biosférate’ distributes fabric bags and 4.000 paper bags and 6.000 paper cones on the stands of product sales

"Cambia de bolsa” (change your bag) is the name of the campaign of the Biosférate project that took place at the Feaga Fair of Fuerteventura in order to eliminate single-use plastic bags on the stands of the Biosphere Market and for those selling products such as cheeses, jams and oil, amongst others. Therefore, during the three days of the 2019 Feaga Fair, 800 fabric bags were handed out as well as 6.000 paper cones and 4.000 paper bags in order to keep on bringing awareness amongst shopkeepers and consumers about the problems created by single-use plastics in the ecosystem. The Biosférate project is an initiative of Fuerteventura's Cabildo that aims at promoting amongst the population the importance of preserving and caring for natural and cultural values of the Biosphere Reserve of Fuerteventura.
