Casa Pueblo – Non-profit, a community self-management project that is committed to protecting natural, cultural and human resources. It was born in 1980 when the government of Puerto Rico wanted to start a mining operation in 17 deposits of silver, gold and copper. Mining would have caused an ecological and social catastrophe in 36,000 ropes of land in the municipalities of Adjuntas, Utuado, Lares and Jayuya. Casa Pueblo is providing solar lighting and sustainable resources to municipalities all over Puerto Rico. For more information please go to:
