An Internet initiative that we launched in April 2016 and that forms part of the social awareness project 'You do more than you think', with the objective of raising awareness among citizens of the importance of correctly collecting and environmentally treating a waste as hazardous as used industrial oil.

In the game hosted on the www.hacesmasdeloquecrees.org website and our Facebook page www.facebook.com/hacesmasconsigaus, through four fun games and a final test, users discovered the life cycle of used oil, playing for numerous prizes, including an environmental prize with the possibility of giving their name to one of the 1,000 trees planted in the 'Fifth SIGAUS Forest'.

For the creation of this Fifth SIGAUS Forest, a collaboration agreement was signed with the Town Hall of Leganés (Madrid) with an express agreement between the top representatives from both institutions, Santiago Llorente, Mayor of Leganés, and Eduardo de Lecea, Managing Director of SIGAUS.

The planting of this new green area took place in spring, fully funded by SIGAUS, overseeing both the planting, as well as the installation of the irrigation network, connected to the municipal network, for its maintenance in the first year.
