Why Giving Tuesday?

Puerto Rico Composta is in the process of creating a farm-based organic waste operation educational center, where individuals, families, students and seniors will learn about composting, recycling, agriculture and sustainability. As a result, we promote a cleaner island, with less waste, with a food secure future that addresses sustainability.
Did you know that landfills are full? Soon there will be garbage everywhere. Puerto Rico Composta believes that each individual or community has the potential to recycle their organic waste at the source of generation, in order to reduce the waste that ends up in our landfills. Through our programs and services we educate families (children, adolescents, youth and adults) of Puerto Rico because there is an urgency to create citizens with environmental awareness to manage waste efficiently.
