Speaking, COBAEJ student Vania Daniela pointed out that “we proudly support the cleaning of our beaches, because we want to encourage the responsible participation of all citizens and help in the ecological problems that Puerto Vallarta is experiencing. Today we are starting the cleaning of the following beaches: Camarones, Tranquila, Las Glorias, Los Tules, Boca de Tomates, Holiday Inn, and the Paso del Guayabo and Pitillal rivers”, expressing that their colleagues are already carrying out other actions as a rescue team of green areas, product recycling, reforestation, health days, among others.

On the part of the municipal authorities, it was highlighted that various ecological awareness projects are promoted, so this campaign is intended to educate the population about the importance of keeping our most beautiful resources clean, which are the beaches, the sea, and the rivers so that it can be enjoyed for generations.

In this case, it was sought that it not be a campaign solely of the government but one that actively included society, highlighting on this occasion the enthusiasm of these young people and their teachers, to prevent garbage from reaching the sea and contaminating our bay.
