Wastes barter

We publish a new video which tells the umpteenth adventure of our dear friend Aimée.

Even such a small thing like waste separation becomes a gigantic problem. Waste separation in Stromboli does not work properly; therefore Aimée has been collecting her recyclables for years rather than throwing them away: milk bottles, newspapers and other materials. In her garden she had been piling up tons of glass bottles, and her attic was full of stacks of paper.

Finally she finds out that Ecopunto in Messina is able to accept these materials and they are willing to barter them with other products. So Aimée can get rid of them while respecting the environment. There is only one catch, she needs to have them transported by ship to the collection point at her own expenses! But this ain’t gonna stop Aimée!
