MENOS PLASTICO IS FANTASICO

By late March 2020 when the world pandemic crisis truly began to impact everyone the crew working the weekly Saturday beach cleanings in Punta Herradura, MX with the Menos Plastico es Fantastico team began to get weary of their future. At the end of that last clean-up in March when they were weighing the trash for the weekly report everyone in the group started telling the coordinator, Evan, how grateful they were to be a part of the team.  Most of them had already lost their jobs at the local port and were very concerned with how they were going to survive over the next few months.  Every single one of the 10 community members were nearly in tears as they thanked Evan for not giving up on this project and for providing them with some weekly income to help cover their basic necessities.  The humble team specifically asked Evan to reach out and thank Positive Legacy for supporting them and to let PL know how important our support really is in these people’s lives.

Mahahual, MX - $13,000

Positive Legacy is excited to work with Menos Plasticos for the first time to support their beach cleaning, plastic removing, turtle habitat saving mission. In 2019 we provided a $13,000 grant to support a weekly beach clean up of 100 + kilometers of virgin beaches to the North & South of Mahahual before the current plastics become micro plastics and enter our food chain. They are creating jobs within their community to do so, benefitting our environment & the community alike.
