In the midst of this environmental problem, the state government of Sao Paulo in partnership with Companhia de Saneamento Básico do Estado de Sao Paulo (Sabesp) created the Programa de Reciclagem de Óleo (PROL) – Recycling Program for Cooking Oil. The project represents a comprehensive  environmental program in partnership with governmental and non governmental organizations, businessmen, housewives, teachers and students. 

The project, which was accepted by the majority of the population, has supported and collaborated in its implementation and dissemination. Each year that passes, more cities adhere to the project.  Beyond the environmental issue, the program has a social appeal because in some cities, the collection of oil has generated income to poor communities.  The population has become aware of this project because of a major advertising campaign via posters and leaflets, which were distributed to partner institutions of this initiative.
