Quito, June 25th, 2019.- Arca Continental, one of the top Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, recently received the “Sustainable Ecuador” award from Ecuador’s Ministry of the Environment.

The award was granted for the implementation of the Development - Environment - Recycling program (also known by its Spanish acronym, DAR) whose goal is to offer base recyclers better economic, social, and organizational conditions, in addition to promoting a culture of recycling.

The DAR program is implemented in collaboration with the Municipality of Quito through itsQuito a Reciclar(Quito Recycling) program and as a joint venture with the National Recyclers Network of Ecuador (Red Nacional de Recicladores del Ecuador, RENAREC). The program has had a positive impact on hundreds of recycler families, of which 70% are women, by paying them fair fees for the recycled materials and offering technical training and support for acquiring transportation equipment.

The awards ceremony took place during an event known as Sustainable Ecuador, an initiative promoted by the National Government and Sambito, showcasing the work and management of private companies that sponsor initiatives for caring and protecting the environment through recycling efforts.
