En nuestra Jornada de Clasificación, podés ayudar a estas dos causas en un mismo día. Somos una organización que recolecta tapitas plásticas, las cuales estaremos clasificando por color para poder ser recicladas. Con lo recaudado, donamos alimento, medicación, materiales de construcción a refugios de animales en todo el país. Cada mes, cientos de voluntarios se suman a recolectar y clasificar tapitas. Sumate y ayudanos a ayudar a miles de animales necesitados en una forma fácil y divertida, que también ayuda a nuestro planeta.

ENGLISH: Are you interested in helping out our environment and the wellbeing of animals? You can help both causes in one day! At our Sorting Day, we classify plastic bottle caps according to color for recycling. The profits from these recycled plastics are used to buy and donate food, medicine, building materials and more to animal shelters all over Uruguay. Every month, hundreds of volunteers help out to collect and sort several tons of plastic bottlecaps. Join us in helping our animals in need in a colorful and fun way… that also helps our planet!
