Agrishow - Sustainability

In order to protect the environment and contribute to the quality of life and well-being of the community, Agrishow has been carrying out and promoting a series of sustainable actions. Here are some of the actions:

Recycle Action

The waste recycling action during Agrishow 2019 was aimed at obtaining the maximum possible use of each waste, to avoid ending up in landfills. 

591.04 tons of waste were collected during assembly, realization and disassembly of the event, and 55% of the materials were recycled correctly, providing benefits for the environment and the Ribeirão Preto region.

Two institutions partnered for this: Cooperativa Mãos Dadas, which serves 38 families and had a 30% increase in monthly income in May 2019; and Reciclagem Pedreira Jurucê, which is part of the Reintegra social project and which uses the workforce of the Prison Progression Center.

 


Food Donation - Vegetables
