Santa Barbara Palace in Madrid was the place chosen to organise the market.

Visitors also enjoyed workshops for all audiences: from building recycled instruments to making homemade soap as well as tasting beers… Undoubtedly the best way to discover the recycling world and its opportunities!
Ecoembes results presentation
On 17 May, on World Recycling Day, Ecoembes presented the household packaging figures for Spain in 2015 to the media, announcing that Spaniards recycled 1,300,339 tons of packaging, up 3.3% from 2014, representing 74.8% of the containers managed by Ecoembes. This achievement was possible thanks to the commitment demonstrated by citizens and the efforts made by both governments and companies, which combined to reduce our impact on the environment by preventing the release of 1.2 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere – equivalent to removing 25.88% of Madrid’s cars from the road.
A total of 29 journalists attended, including professionals from the leading Spanish media outlets operating nationwide and specializing in economic issues. Ecoembes took advantage of the press conference to also divulge its positions about packaging deposits, refunds and returns
