Cártama. An initiative aimed at the reforestation of areas in Cártama that have been affected by drought, floods or fires has been launched by the Worten domestic appliance outlet. The company has initiated a programme under the banner of Bosque Worten, which will include the planting of more than 400 trees in the Hacienda de Mellado ecological reserve, an area badly damaged by drought.

The project was announced on World Environment Day last June, when the company initiated a recycling policy for old appliances that had been returned to secure a reduction on a new purchase.

The Mayor of Cártama, Jorge Gallardo, met with the Worten executive director of services and after sales, José Faria, in Cártama last week, to discuss the next stages of the project.

"Malaga is a very important area for us and for this reason we have contributed to the reforestation of areas that have suffered greatly because of the numerous droughts," Faria said during the meeting.

The company will also launch a similar project in Portugal.
