The aim of Reciclart is to create feeding corridors for the migratory monarch butterfly and other pollinators. Reciclart is creating gardens where monarch butterflies and other pollinators feed. It also produces milkweeds and other flowering plants, and donates plants to other institutions, like the University of Monterrey. It has created gardens in the city of Monterrey and suburbs of Apodaca, Escobedo and Santa Catarina. Milkweeds are planted in those gardens but so are many other local species, such as anacahuitas. Reciclart works in coordination with Correo Real, Parque Chipinque and federal institutions such as the Ministry of Education (Facebook 2016; Ortiz 2016).
