Fight against climate changes
Due to current climate conditions, in August 2018, a global movement called “Fridays for Future” was created with the objective of challenging the lack of actions against the climate crisis. Since March 2020, we also joined that movement in order to raise the awareness of Amarante’s community about this problem.
Amarante sustentável is a campaign created to promote good practices concerning the consumption of local products, supporting biological producers and to stand up for Fair Trade’s principles. It intends to raise the citizens’ awareness about the positive impact that the local, bio and fair products can have in your lives, creating a virtuous chain that empowers the community, supports the local economy and is environmentally friendly. All of this keeping in consideration ethical values and made with dignity.
