Matting in quarantine times

The National Institute of Yerba Mate launched a guide with recommendations to kill in quarantine times. A tradition that remains firm.


The precautions to be taken due to the   COVID-19   pandemic affect one of our most precious traditions:  mate  . But it is possible to continue killing in quarantine, with the necessary measures. That is why the   National Institute of Yerba Mate  (INYM)  launched the  “Take Mate, Take Precautions”  guide with all the necessary recommendations to   kill in quarantine times  .

Mate is the biggest thing there is and it was always synonymous with sharing. Today this takes another dimension. Today we have to share the responsibility of caring for ourselves and caring for others. That's why we created this  recommendation guide, so you can take mate safely and keep us connected. We invite you to read it, we invite you to share it.

The publication includes all the instructions to be able to take mate safely:  how to sanitize the utensils of the matero kit , how to handle and store  yerba  with caution, among other things.

In addition, they encourage all Argentines to  remain connected despite  distances  . At this time, where physical contact has gone into the background, the important thing is to focus on what is really crucial: love for the other, social responsibility, and  solidarity  towards our community.

Today sharing takes another dimension and mate invites us to be more present than ever, united in another way. Because, whatever happens,  mate is in our  identity . 

We can continue to create good and nice moments between us, because we're still connected. Have talks, tell us anecdotes, laugh in the distance, and even cry. Let's continue to share this in virtual matteadas with our family or friends, each with their own matte, bulb and thermos.

 To see the complete guide and learn how to kill in quarantine times, you can go to this  link .
