CANCUN — More than 2,000 people from 58 institutions will participate in the International Coastal Cleanup 2015, which will take place on Sept. 20 on the Langosta, Tortuga and Mirador Dos (Nizuc) beaches and in Puerto Morelos.
This project is organized by the company Arsa Caribbean, together with the organization Ocean Conservancy.
“What we want primarily is not to collect more garbage, it is not collecting garbage, because it is not a clean beach where most garbage is collected, but rather where less arrives,” said Jaime Sanchez, chief operating officer of Arsa Caribbean.
The schedule for the beach cleaning is 8 a.m. to noon.
The checkered flag will be unfurled at Nizuc beach and cleanup at other beaches will commence soon after.
It is recommended that volunteers start the day with a good breakfast, get to the beaches in carpools or public transport and wear comfortable clothing with closed shoes.
Volunteers can not bring pets, alcoholic beverages, glass bottles or very young children because of the sun.
In each of the locations mentioned, there will be a group of volunteers who act as captains to coordinate others who join in the effort.
Volunteers will be given trash bags and gloves, and at the end trash should be recorded, separated and weighed.
Last year there were about 7,500 volunteers in 48 locations nationwide and they gathered more than 17 tons of garbage.
“We must be aware of and be responsible to not leave food trash on the beach, but bring it back,” added Jaime Sanchez.
