SUSTENTA clean up day in Mahahual

Despite the wind and the rain, the people of Mahahual teamed up with the GVI Mexico staff on the 25th September to mark Project Aware Day and remove rubbish from the town’s beaches. As part of the SUSTENTA campaign (an ongoing project to supply families with water filters to reduce the use of plastic bottles- see Charitable Trust page to donate!) the families of the town started to collect rubbish and plastic bottles from the 4th September. One little boy alone managed to fill 40 bags!

The amount of rubbish collected during September was immense, let alone the 2 tons we collected in only 3 hours on the 25th! A day well spent! The Activities finished with a ceremony to award the winning teams (ones with the most rubbish) with a water filter. An amazing event opening people’s eyes to the amount of litter on the beaches!
Well done Mahahual!
