Costa Rica says goodbye to plastic and carbon emissions: it will be the first totally green country in the world
Costa Rica green country
A small country with great resources. We could therefore briefly define Costa Rica, a Central American state that often speaks of itself in a virtuous and positive way. The causes of this notoriety are different. The mild climate, biodiversity, tranquility and unspoiled nature have made Costa Rica one of the happiest places in the world. As if that were not enough, the US state has no army since 1948 and sends military funds in the fields of culture and health, ensuring quality education and public care. But it is on the green side that, in recent years, Costa Rica is setting up a real revolution. By 2021, this wonderful state will become the first country in the world devoid of plastic and zero carbon.
Like, how? To achieve an objective of this magnitude, sustainability is ubiquitous. Since 2014, the country uses energy from renewable sources. Wind, sun, waterways and volcanoes are the "driving force" of Costa Rica's activities, without affecting resources or delicate ecosystems. The search for a quality of life and an ever greater environment in Costa Rica also involves measures limiting the use of plastic. From June 2017, the abandonment of disposable plastic has begun. With the support of United Nations development programs, thousands of everyday objects made from polluting plastics derived from petroleum are rapidly giving way to biodegradable and recyclable materials. 100% green policies that would not be bad to adopt in a more widespread and widespread way almost everywhere in the world. Only by realizing how important it is to preserve and not exploit the only environment that holds us to the end. In fact, we can avoid irreparable damage.
