The Lisbon City Council signed the partnership agreement with Altis Hotels, among others, Azad Lda, the Association of Hoteliers of Portugal, Turismo de Lisboa and the Sociedade Ponto Verde for the implementation of URBAN-WASTE. Two of the main objectives are to reduce 2.5% of total urban waste produced by tourists and increase the separation of recyclable materials by 40%.
On the 20th, Altis visited the APPT21 and made a donation corresponding to its partnership with Amb3E, managing entity of the Electron Network.
This donation corresponds to the donation, of a monetary value, as a function of the kg of waste electrical and electronic equipment and lamps delivered to Amb3. Since March 2016, Altis hotels and their collaborators have managed to collect 6 620kg of waste for this project, which corresponds to the value of 620 € donated.

As usual in my child's school, the school's parents association (APEE), to which I belong, organizes different activities for children.
On the 14th of October it was held a cooking workshop for the little ones, in which I would be happy to participate, under the theme "Healthy Food Day".
The aim is to encourage children to eat more fruits and vegetables, different and creative ways.
I took advantage of this moment of learning and sharing and challenged children to create fresh fruit pepelotes. In this case, we have various types of fruit in aluminum foil, closed like a package and take to the oven. Last few minutes the fruit is ready.
