One of the main activities of the Ecological Network is the collective purchases that enable the supply of organic products at affordable prices while supporting green initiatives and solidary of producers.
The Ecological Network also has developed recycling activities, agro tourism, agriculture and urban campaigns.
Participation in the Ecological Network is open to anyone who identifies with its principles. By registering on Ecological Network, the person starts receiving a weekly chart with the products of the collective purchases and information about the activities, campaigns, petitions, consumer tips, services and products offers and so on.
