We are on a mission to make a change in Mexico. Check out our current and upcoming projects and join the cause!
Sadly Mexico does not yet have the recycling power needed to keep the plastic waste off the Caribbean beaches. With a few local recycling centers, we decided to help and educate by promoting the separation and understanding of plastic bottle caps. We placed this fun and inviting guy in some of the local schools in the area.
Mar Amor was founded due to the mass amounts of plastic we found covering the once pristine beaches of the Mexican Caribbean. For the last year we have been involved with the community by removing plastic waste from our coastlines. From Cancun to Sian Ka'an, we have had the amazing support of volunteers making a difference one piece of plastic at a time.
For the past year we have been involved in cleaning the beaches of the mexican Caribbean. We have seen the mass amounts of plastic and waste that wash up. We are currently in the process of planning ocean cleanups. We are talking with possible boat sponsors and volunteers about making this happen before the end of the year.
We strongly believe that there is no need to continue the production of plastic. Every single piece of plastic ever made still exists today. So why aren't we using it? About 15% of all plastic is recycled, the rest is ending up in our oceans and lands. We have some ideas on how to reuse our waste vs using natural resources as alternatives.
We have slowly but surely began creating partnerships & alliances to help support and promote the fight against plastic. Small hotels such as Villa Duendes in Akumal will give away free nights in exchange for bags of plastic waste collected on the beaches.
Our oceans & beaches face one of the biggest threats humanity has ever seen. With the help of donors & partners like you, Mar Amor is developing innovative projects aimed towards a plastic free Mexico. Thank you for your donation and support.
