Exploratory research was carried out using a sample of different studies on recycling programmes. The methodology employed consisted of a documentary review, using record cards to collect information. The results highlight the relevance of several projects in promoting more sustainable practices, although many of them fail to fully achieve their goals. Furthermore, it is noted that several authors offer additional perspectives on recycling and environmental conservation. In conclusion, the analysis of the implementation of these recycling programmes serves to raise awareness of the actions undertaken and the need for effective compliance.</p> Ana Luisa López Brunett Xavier Xavier Miranda Ayala Copyright (c) 2024 Ana Luisa López Brunett, Xavier Xavier Miranda Ayala https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2024-06-24 2024-06-24 8 50 10.31876/er.v8i50.867 Identification of the predominant gastronomic culture in Isla Trinitaria - South of Guayaquil https://revistaespirales.com/index.php/es/article/view/868 <p style="font-weight: 400;">Guayas, generally one of the most populated provinces on the Ecuadorian coast, has a diverse gastronomy influenced by customs and traditions rooted throughout generations.
