In response to the invitation made by Fundación Empresas Polar, Fundación La Tortuga dictated during the second week of July, 4 Workshops of Reúso to ladies of Naricual, Edo. Anzoátegui. This work is part of a training project promoted by Fundación Empresas Polar for some time and where it seeks to empower women with tools that generate productivity and innovation.

4 Workshops in total were dictated: with newspaper, old magazines, plastic bottles and plastic containers. From the hand of the facilitator and active member of La Tortuga Foundation, Mayrelis Moya, the ladies present learned to make flowers, baskets and jewelry, which with a little practice and a minimum investment, will be able to turn this knowledge into an economic activity that generates income for the family nucleus.

La Tortuga Foundation through its Reúso Workshops teaches the general public to see differently the containers or objects that at one time are considered garbage. These same objects at the time of classifying them, become "materials" that serve to elaborate many other useful, decorative, recreational things that in turn, will help the domestic economy.

Initiatives such as this must be multiplied to disseminate and sensitize the entire population. The planet is going through difficult times because its natural resources are increasingly scarce due to the overwhelming human activity, which does not give respite or time to the natural processes that exist since before, even, the appearance of man on Earth.
