Keep reading below to learn more about the positive effects of working together for a greener Banderas Bay.
Working Together for a Greener Banderas Bay
Many years ago, it was common practice to throw away broken or unwanted items into your backyard or in the woods. However, at that time products were typically made of biodegradable wood or clay. However, plastics were introduced that have seriously negative effects on the environment. Many of the convenience items we use today didn’t exist years ago including fast food bags and wrappers, soda cans, soda bottles, plastic bottles and containers, and more. These items are polluting our environment now and for hundreds of years in the future. To reduce the environmental impact of our choices, we must recycle as much as possible and reduce the use of these non-biodegradable items.
- PV Residents Are Making Strides
Some residents of Puerto Vallarta have decided to take action to help reduce the area’s litter issues. For starters, American expat John Benus started a trash campaign called the “War Against Litter that has been helpful for the community. Previously, he ran a successful trash campaign in Talpa de Allende. When he lived in the State, he also worked on the Adopt a Highway campaign in California. That program was very successful in cleaning up highways and roads and is still utilized today.
- Limpia Tu Barrio Trash Campaign Results
Also, British expat Tania Gedmintas started the Limpia Tu Barrio trash campaign, which in English means “Clean Your Neighborhood”. She was inspired to carry an empty bag during neighborhood walks with her children. Along their way, they would pick up trash and later post pictures on social media showing how much they collected. Her efforts motivated others to do the same. Today, regular trash cleanups are held in various neighborhoods throughout the region where people are working together for a greener Banderas Bay. As a result, Puerto Vallarta and surrounding neighborhoods in the area are much cleaner due to her positive influence.
