Huatulco - Clean Beach Day

Today's guest post is from Greg Glassman, Director of Montecito, a luxury residential development located at the eastern end of the Bay of Conejos.

From local businesses, to schools, and government officials, more than 700 people showed up early this past Friday morning to lend their support to Huatulco’s Earth Check Clean Beach Initiative.

Using donated equipment and materials from the community, participants were broken into teams and a coordinated effort was launched to not only clean trash off the beaches of Huatulco, but to continue environmental awareness within the community.

Trash collected included more than 3,000 plastic bags, over 1,400 plastic bottles and an excess of 1,100 glass bottles, to name just a few of the items recorded. The Earth Check team did a fantastic job of organizing the day and following up with real statistics based on the collection journals kept by each team’s leader.

It was an inspiring event. Spirits were high as Huatulco yet again solidified its commitment to the environment. I was proud to participate as a member of the community.

We all live here together. Make everyday a clean beach day by always leaving the beach cleaner than you found it.
