- NORONHA

BRAZIL'S FIRST TERRITORY
FREE OF SINGLE-USE
PLASTIC

Noronha Plástico Zero came from a dream, but with one certainty: it is possible to transform the whole world through the example of an island without single-use plastic. We are from the team that believes that the transforming force is in each individual, and also in collective action. The project was implemented after the adoption of District Decree 02/2018, which prohibits the entry, use and sale of single-use disposable plastic in Fernando de Noronha. The Decree became effective on April 11, 2019.

NO SINGLE-USE PLASTIC HERE!

Commercial establishments, hotels, bars, restaurants, inns, cafeterias, street vendors and kiosks are included in the Decree and subject to fines if they fail to comply.

YOU ARE PART OF NATURE

We need to rethink the legacy and what we want to leave to the world. We are part of nature, the problem and the solution! Which side are you on: disposing or regenerating?

4 STEPS OF THIS JOURNEY

Conscious consumption is transformative. Through a partnership with the Fernando de Noronha Administration/ Government of the State of Pernambuco, and the support of social and environmental impact companies Menos 1 Lixo and Iönica, a 4-step journey was conceived: rethink, regenerate, reuse and resignify. In this trajectory, developed from a cycle that begins, ends and starts again, each of the actions has enormous value and the power to make a difference inside and outside Noronha—uniting society in a humanized way, with a more welcoming vision, aware of the relevance of each one of us in the transformation of our Planet.

RETHINK

Our consumption has a direct impact on the world and we must rethink our legacy, who we are and how we act on the Planet. Do you feel part or apart from nature?

REGENERATE

Let's build a new and multiplying worldview. Go beyond sustainability as a resource and regenerate Noronha with the help of the community.

REUSE

Noronha Plástico Zero considers that reuse is a solution for disposal. Through our Kit, we want to simplify consumption and help avoid waste.

RESIGNIFY

Glass is yet another residue embraced by the project. Resignified, it is no longer just a raw material for bottles it becomes an important pillar in local construction.

AN IMPACT PROJECT

The Fernando de Noronha Administration / Government of the State of Pernambuco becomes a reference in social and environmental public policies aimed at tackling plastic pollution. The Program has direct positive impacts on the environmental quality of the Island and the quality of life of its inhabitants.

With the support and engagement of residents, business owners, visitors and partners, including the impact businesses Menos 1 Lixo and Iönica, actions that are in line with the National Plan to Combat Marine Waste and the Sustainable Development Goals are being developed, making the scope of the Program exceed the limits of the Archipelago, contributing to the Planet and the health of the oceans. Noronha is taking steps to become the most sustainable territory in Brazil.

For HEINEKEN no Brasil, partner of Noronha Plástico Zero, the project is a source of pride and reflects the beliefs of the Company, which are in line with its strategy to ensure business continuity and contribute to the future of this and future generations. With less waste, especially plastic and glass, the idea is to stimulate effective behavior change, either through education, and especially through positive attitudes from public and private initiatives down to each citizen.

OUR GOALS TO THE 
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) bring together 17 global goals set by the UN General Assembly. The SDGs cover issues of social and economic development.
These are the objectives of Noronha Plástico Zero:

From now on we must rethink our habits and make the necessary substitutions, because this will result in an environmentally proper place and, consequently, in the improvement of the islanders' quality of life
