Botellas de Amor Fundación (Bottles of love foundation) is a circular economy strategy that transforms post-consumer and post-industrial plastic waste into social work. We firmly believe that, from love, a planet free of plastic trash is possible; so we developed a strategy, which consists of making each person take responsibility for their flexible plastic waste by compacting it inside a bottle. We collect these bottles and transform them into Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL). We use the RPL for its commercialization and the construction of houses, playgrounds and school and urban furniture, which, with the support of entities and companies, we donate to vulnerable communities.
