The San Sebastián City Council will return this week to distribute “free” the “seasonal” flowers and plants that it has removed from parks and gardens. An initiative that has enjoyed great success since it was launched in 2021 to offer a “second life” to flowers and plants that were previously destined for compost production and that began with the distribution of 5,000 plants.

The initiative has been consolidated and on this occasion up to 30,000 “winter” flowers and plants will be distributed, including “primroses, pansies, Chinese carnations, marigolds and 5,000 bulbs of daffodils and tulips”, as highlighted by the mayor of Urban Maintenance, Carlos Garcia.

This is an initiative related to ecology and the “circular economy”. Flowers and plants that are removed from ornamental gardens and distributed free of charge to citizens with the aim that “they can replant them in their homes, thus prolonging their life.”

As is customary in recent years, the flowers and plants are delivered in a biodegradable container made from plant fibers and in a 100% recyclable bag. Deliveries will take place from 10:00 a.m. until the plants are exhausted.

NEIGHBORHOODS WHERE THE DELIVERY TAKES PLACE

The distribution began on Tuesday, April 30 in Plaza Ramón Labayen and will continue this Thursday, May 2 on Paseo de Ondarreta in the Antiguo neighborhood and on Friday, May 3 in Plaza de Pio XII de Amara in San Sebastián.
