AS part of its work with Costa Almeria bars, restaurants and other local businesses to help reduce their environmental impact and “be part of the solution not the pollution”, Coastal Cleaners Andalucia (CAA), will be staging a meeting later this month about its ‘plastic beating’ scheme.
Now in its second year, the CCA Approved Venue Award scheme provides a checklist of 10 ideas and practices, including returnable glass water bottles, finger bowls not wet wipes, bunting and reusable decorations rather than balloons, and separating packaging for recycling.
Venues achieving seven out of 10 and above are awarded Approved Venue status and are presented with a logo to display for the year to promote their commitment to greener practices.
The gathering at the Neptuno restaurant on Mojacar Playa on Tuesday March 23, from 11am to 1pm, will be an opportunity for CAA to explain the scheme further, answer questions and introduce suppliers of helpful products. CAA says all local eatery owners, suppliers and interested parties are welcome.
