Mexico Cleanup with Ama Tu Playa

Mexico: the newest country that we have added to our list of cleanup locations!

This past Saturday we partnered with Ama Tu Playa, an organization based in Miramar, Tamaulipas, to have a much-needed beach cleanup. The problem of marine debris on this beach not only affects the beauty of the beach, it also causes serious, and sometimes fatal, problems with the flora and fauna of the marine environment. We knew that something needed to be done and we are glad that there were many volunteers ready to step in and take action!

After a morning spent cleaning, the team was able to remove over 500 pounds - 545 pounds to be exact - of trash from just this one beach in Mexico. Thanks to the tremendous help from the volunteers at Ama Tu Playa, we are happy to check off Mexico as a country where 4Ocean cleanups have happened. 

Ama Tu Playa was founded with a simple mission: to help clean their local beaches while inspiring the rest of the world to do the same. Miramar Beach is the main beach that Ama Tu Playa focuses their attention as many local and tourists alike leave behind their trash on this beach. The problem of trash does not only affect the appearance of the beach, but poses a serious threat to the fauna and flora of the marine environment. Ama Tu Playa is a group of volunteers from all ages who dedicate each second Sunday of the month to clean the North beach where Tildillos is located. This organization does not only represent beach cleaning, it also represents courage, hope, and strength, with the main goal and purpose of saving Playa Miramar. 

This may have been our first cleanup here, but it is definitely not our last! If you would like to find out when or where there is a cleanup near you, you can sign up to become a volunteer HERE
