MOJACAR was officially recognised as Spain’s most sustainable municipality.

The town recently received a Green Flag from Ecovidrio for glass recycling this summer, along with seven other municipalities in regions bordering the Mediterranean coast.

Mojacar has now been named the most sustainable of them all by collecting 70,000 kilos of glass between July and August.


Presenting Mojacar’s Environment councillor Emmanuela Aguera with the coveted Green Flag, Hugo Moran, Spain’s junior minister for the Environment, congratulated the town for reaching a goal of excellence that symbolised “a job well done.”

She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
