Ecoembes launched the 4th edition of the “Los Profes Cuentan” contest, which encourages primary school teachers and their students to create, together, a story that delivers a lesson about cooperation and recycling.

The objective is to reward teachers’ educational work regarding the environment through literature.

This year, under the themes of Collaboration, Cooperation and Recycling, over 150 works were presented, analyzed by a panel headed by the Spanish journalist and wrighter Rosa Montero.

Los recicladores nocturnos (The Nocturnal Recyclers), the winning story, seeks to raise awareness about the environmental importance of placing waste in the right container. In this story a group of cats, when they see that the recycling containers are empty, and the grey one is full, decide to take each packaging item to the right container before the garbage truck arrives.
