Changemaker: Lorena Flores

Country of Implementation: Ecuador

The use of a blue bag in Cuenca to dispose the non organic waste, represents only 60 % of the total recyclable material that is intended to become the raw material for the increasing industrialisation. Can you picture a beautiful bright Cuenca, where each sheet of paper discarded becomes a plant on every street corner or school? That would be beautiful!

"Huasi Muyu (home seed)” is a proposal to make each sheet of paper one more chance to save the planet. Working with the children of recyclers families can generate social, green and sustainable impact in parishes and communities within and nearby the area. Huasi Muyu seeks people who want to make a change and want to be part of this great green family.

Huasi Muyu is planting paper for a future and a better Cuenca!
