As a digital nomad, you’re likely always on the go, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still make a positive impact on the environment. This article will guide you to some of the best refill stations and recycling options in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
The impact of refill stations
Refill stations have a significant impact on the environment. By refilling instead of buying new containers, you’re reducing waste and the amount of packaging that ends up in landfills. Additionally, refilling helps to reduce the amount of resources needed to produce new containers and packaging, which in turn lowers carbon emissions from manufacturing processes.
