60 trees were destined to enrich the Bicentennial Park (Av. Hipólito Yrigoyen 2400, San Fernando) and another 40, will be planted in the municipal area in the Nueva Esperanza branch, in the Delta del Paraná biosphere reserve.
These trees are added to another 100 that were planted last December in the Youth Park of the city of La Rioja (province of La Rioja), again thanks to the accompaniment and support of TetraPak to the Week of the Tree – Million Trees campaign, And together with the environmental authorities of the government of the province of La Rioja.
