CIÊNCIAS gives value to recycling!
Together we are adopting practices that have an impact, not only on the environment, but also on our quality of life.
On World Recycling Day, CIÊNCIAS informs that on campus we have 145 recycling points and since January 2023, 4 tons of plastics and 32 tons of paper have been collected.

Already in 2024 we have managed to collect almost 1 ton of food waste.

With the effort of the entire CIÊNCIAS community we managed to preserve 720 trees and the amount of plastic collected is equivalent to 3200 t-shirts!
