What They’re Saying: 

  • Borja Martiarena, Marketing Director of Ecovidrio: “We have been working together with Disneyland Paris for three years now. At the heart of both companies is the awareness and mobilization of young people, children, and families to build a better world together. That is visible every time we take to the streets with these fun recycling locations. We hope that they have great impact and are well remembered by the families who participate.”
  • Kate Boyle, VP Sales & Distribution, Disneyland Paris: “Disneyland Paris’s commitment to the environment is a tradition in our company, which began with Walt Disney himself and which we continue to grow every day. We are very excited to collaborate for the third consecutive year on this project. It is a very significant year for us, as we are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Disneyland Paris, so we wanted the 2022 campaign to be even more special and magical. Miniature versions of the Disney Character recycling locations are also being sold, with all proceeds going to the Aladina Foundation projects.”
