Sustainable development affects everything and everyone. If we do not take into account the sustainability factors relating to our everyday lives, we endanger our environment and our possibilities for development. It is therefore essential that we ensure that we manage the waste we generate properly, and this includes the waste from used cooking oil.
Consequently, caring for the environment must be a commitment that we all make as individuals. According to the current legislation on Protecting the Environment, conserving our planet appropriately is our right and our duty.
