article-image

Mexico produces more than 84 tons of garbage per day, more than 30 millions tons per year! Unfortunately everyday 57,000 of these end up in the natural areas, roads, wastelands and clandestine dumps. Then the rain, wind and storms take all this garbage to our rivers, lakes and oceans.

A community group, Ocelopilli – Guerreros Jaguar (Jaguar Warriors) continues its alliance with Fundación Punta de Mita, commited to avoid all this trash get to our beautiful bay, while changing the habits and creating awareness of the importance of protecting our environment.

Guerreros Jaguar and Fundación Punta de Mita invite you to join their upcoming cleanup this Sunday, August 14th, from 7:30am until noon, reunion will be at the Punta de Mita sports Center. Your help will be greatly appreciated!

Guerreros Jaguar picks up between 150 and 200 jumbo trash bags per month from the highway, which results on more than 3,400 backs picked up since they start operating 2.5 years ago. Nowadays at least 197 members of the local communities have participated and adopted this program, suggesting different ways to expand it, as including the lands on the sides of the highway, streets and local beaches.

It is admirable that Guerreros Jaguar for setting an example to the community, and they would like to thank Riviera Nayarit OCV and their supporters for donating plastic bags, gloves and water for the cleanups.
