TORREMOLINOS Council supports the fight against breast cancer by installing a pink glass container in La Carihuela in order to promote WHO World Breast Cancer Month (October) and will turn recycling into donations for the cause.
The initiative ‘Recycle glass for them’ which is promoted by Ecovidrio and the Sandra Ibarra Foundation, aims to raise awareness of the dangers of Breast Cancer and the importance of research and prevention in the face of a disease that affects one in eight women throughout their lives.
Antonio Ruiz, Councillor for the Environment, said that “last year more than two hundred kilos of glass were collected. An important figure, which with everyone’s collaboration could be converted into donations and aid for the cause”.
The pink igloos are meant to remind women to have regular check-ups as early detection can save lives and a mini-version is available to purchase through the website www.miniglu.es with the profits going to the Sandra Ibarra Foundation to contribute to cancer prevention and research.
