The Punta de Mita Environmental Committee, the “Niños Héroes de Chapultepec” Middle School, parents, local environmental organizations, and Fundación Punta de Mita added to the building wave of support for our planet this past International Earth Day, April 22nd, by picking up 81 jumbo trash bags from Punta de Mita beaches. #MitaPorLaTierra.

More than 120 students and teachers from the Emiliano Zapata middle school gathered to clean the beach and part of the town streets. Afterwards, to celebrate a job well done, 3 local environmental non-profits: The Manta Project, ECOBAC (whale conservation), and Red Tortuguera (Turtle Camp Network) came by to tell us about the work they do with these species and how our everyday actions can have a huge impact on them. We hope this event creates awareness about the importance of being a coastal community, as we are the last filter before garbage reaches the ocean.

As a community foundation, Punta de Mita Environmental Committee is very proud of taking the lead with this event: “Considering the environmental issues of our region, we consider it necessary to join forces to tackle them together, developing conservation programs with the local communities.” This event is just the beginning, we look forward to more initiatives and new members to join the committee in making Punta de Mita an example as an ecologically sustainable community.

At the moment, the Punta de Mita Environmental Committee is made up by the middle-school director, Lolys Curiel, Nicolas Melani from SurfMex, Soley Garnica from Iberostar, and Minerva Zamora from Fundacion Punta de Mita. If you would like to join this initiative, or have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch: info@surfmex.mx or info@fundacionpuntademita.org
