EL CAMPELLO council has voted out plastic water bottles.
A majority of councillors voted to substitute the plastic bottles currently used for local authority meetings.
The motion, which was brought to Thursday’s plenary session celebrated in the municipal library’s Ramon Lllul hall by Esquerra Unida spokesman Pedro Mario Pardo, had the support of all the local political groups ((Partido Popular, Ciudadanoss, PSPV, iEU, Podem and Red). The only exception was the far-right Voz party.

“A gesture as simple as this, the replacement of plastic bottles which the council uses at meetings, commissions and plenary sessions for reusable bottles, would reduce consumption by more than 10,000 bottles in this legislature”, the EU councillor pointed out.
“The best recycling is to reduce consumption, and if the council wants to carry out non-contamination policies we have to set an example”, he added.
