Nuevo Torino is a small town in the interior of Santafesino. The best known cities nearby are Esperanza and Rafaela. It has less than a thousand inhabitants this production village dairy , like everyone in that region.
Concerned about the growing pollution, which seems to be a lie that could reach such a small commune, a group of neighbors devised a plastic recycling workshop with which they make artistic pieces to embellish their public spaces.
Nuevo Torino already classified its waste in different categories, and each group had a specific destination . Glass is delivered to the local church; cardboard is delivered to the popular library. But the plastic was in the commune . And that's what triggered this initiative, a couple of years ago. Not knowing what to do with plastic, they put their ingenuity to work and thought to make beautiful sculptures . “It's a way to make people aware that, through bottle recycling, things useful to the community can be done. As the people liked it , we decided to continue and innovate with new proposals” tell the workshop's references.
For each special date different pieces were made. One of the first ideas was the most ambitious: a huge Argentine flag for June 20, all made of plastic bottles. More than 2000 packages were used for this “ecological flag”.
Last year, for Easter, they made a big bunny. For Children's Day they created several statues of minions, which were placed in public spaces . For Christmas, of course, a Santa Claus.
The people of Nuevo Torino showed that recycling is not only important to take care of the environment, but can be a strategy to promote art , creativity and a sense of belonging.
