Eco Footprint Bocas


Once again, volunteers have come together to benefit our islands. Thanks to the coordinating efforts of people who truly want to make a different Bocas is getting cleaner all the time. But this time, it’s competitive and each province has a chance to win! Twelve concerned citizens teamed up to compete in a contest held by Foundacion de Roba Morena, located in Panama City. Bocas’ competing project is called Bocas Eco Huella (Eco Footprint Bocas).

The project consists of constructing garbage cans from recyclable materials. The first phase of the project produced 25 garbage cans made from plastic bottles that were placed in strategic areas in town. The second phase is to make and distribute 25 more. It takes roughly two hours and 80-100 plastic bottles to build one of the garbage cans.

Come out to the mini fair at the park March 14, to watch the evaluation for the competition.
