Bolivian companies team up for green deliveries

Bolivia's green delivery service

Bolivian companies have developed a pollution-free delivery chain

Location: Cochabamba, Bolivia

Drivers use electric bikes and motorcycles

Food is packaged in compostable containers

Quantium Motors, Kangaroo Go app and others are teaming up

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) MEMBER OF TARGUET COMPANY, GINNY GALINDO, SAYING:

"These packages decompose in 90 to 180 days. They are self-assembled and manufactured with vegetable-based inks. The objective of this production is to replace single-use plastics."

Cochabamba is one of South America’s most polluted cities

The use of single-use plastic has skyrocketed in this city

These companies hope to build a greener future
