Hazte Eco is a campaign associated with the NEOX channel. Conceived in 2010, it seeks to raise awareness of environmental issues by championing values that help protect the environment. The initiative aims to brings the public closer to pressing environmental concerns and helps viewers appreciate that their individual efforts add up. Through Hazte Eco, Atresmedia is taking the fight to one of the biggest problems facing humanity: climate change.
Over the summer period, Hazte Eco showed an awareness campaign on Neox, alerting the public to the real threat of forest fires in our country. To provide further weight to the campaign of WWF, Atresmedia joined the Cartas desde el Bosque (Letters from the Forest) initiative via the Internet, social networks and through programmes such as Zapeando (laSexta).
A further highlight for the year included Atresmedia’s collaboration in broadcasting the fourth edition of Comparte y Recicla (Share and Recycle) on both Nexo Kidz and Onda Cero. The toy collection programme has Fundación Crecer Jugando at the helm and at its heart the right of children to play, along with respect for the environment and responsible consumption. In 2017, more than 130 tonnes of toys were collected, 40% of which were recycled.
