For about seven years we have got used to living and coping with this economic crisis. Despite all the negative effects it has had on our lives, surprisingly enough, there has also been a silver lining. We have made a step backwards and started doing like our grandparents, for whom everything was valuable and nothing was thrown away, but rather recycled, reused.

Easier than that!
This network produces great benefits for everyone:
So, it’s not too late to try all the advantages of My Foody, because recycling is good, but producing less waste is better!
