Hi Everyone -

I'd like to introduce you to our new endeavor - Zihro Plastic is here:

MISSION:
To educate and empower the local community by introducing eco-friendly alternatives to plastics in our daily lives and working together to clean up beaches and seabeds.

PROJECTS:

1. Eliminate the Use of Straws in restaurants and homes through intensive campaigns and sales of re-usable straws.
2. Eliminate single-use plastic bags by making and selling re-usable shopping bags.
3. Clean up the beaches and sea beds by organizing on-going community volunteer events.

We hope to become self-sustaining through the sale of sea-glass bracelets, locally made with reclaimed materials, and the sale of re-usable shopping bags in various locations around town. We will also need to rely on donations, sponsorships and volunteerism in our community.

WHO WE ARE:
An international team of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo residents who care deeply about our town and the environment as a whole. We each bring our own unique experience and expertise and are volunteering our time and resources to the project.
