BEACH CLEANING

Beaches play a very important role in the ecosystem as they provide a habitat with unique conditions for many animals and plants. Collecting the garbage found on the beaches serves to make it a safe place and improve the coastal and marine ecosystem.

Our goal is to help keep the beaches of Cozumel Island healthy, involving our collaborators and Cozumel society.

#THERMOCHALLENGE

BOTTLE CAP COLLECTION AND DONATIONS
