World Oceans Day Beach Cleanup: Veracruz, Mexico

June 8 @ 7:15 am - 5:00 pm PDT

Beach cleanup for World Oceans Day

Beach Cleanup Veracruz

Plastic Oceans Mexico and Buena Pesca collaborate to work on a beach clean up on the coast of Veracruz, Mexico.

Buena Pesca is an organization that aims to promote the responsible consumption of marine species in Mexico. The goal is to give value to the work of the fisherman, the restaurant (chef) and educate the diner.

Other organizations participating will be Ecolana and Ecoosfera.

Ecolana is a solution to close the recycling loop system. It is an online platform that gathers information on collection centres for all types of rubbish where they make sure these materials are re-processed. They have a solid network throughout Mexico City and are now building up in other regions.

Ecoosfera is an online platform that publishes eco-news and has been following the story of Plastic Oceans Mexico.
