We are gathering great momentum and lots has been happening!

Please check out our website for the story about our first beach and underwater clean up Zihro Plastic Blog and see the great video by Erick Rams: Zihro Plastic First Event Video

We are SO grateful to everyone who donated to help cover all our event expenses - and to everyone who came out and worked hard cleaning up!

We are honored to have been invited to participate in the Festival de la Tortuga Marina - an event sponsored by la dirección de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales - check out some photos from today: Festival de la Tortuga Marina

Last week we participated in round table discussions with delegates from the Opportunity Collaboration conference that was held in Ixtapa with 400 delegates from around the world. We met some great folks and got some great ideas - as well a began our partnership with the amazing and inspirational Azulita Project.

We have a limited supply of shopping bags - available to purchase at Yasmin's shop - La Tienda Organica, and soon they will be for sale out at Playa Viva and other locations to be announced. We still need funds to buy materials and have the bags made, so supplies may run out for a bit.
We have scheduled our next BEACH CLEAN UP EVENT! Put November 19 on your calendars and watch our site and/or Facebook for details.

We still need to raise 4,500 pesos to cover our expenses for the dive boat and event expenses. If you'd like to help out - please donate on our website with a credit card: Donate Online or contact me if you'd prefer to meet and donate in pesos.

Lots of other exciting things in the works too...stay tuned!!! And thanks again for all your support!
