Working Together To Reduce Trash in PV

Many generations ago, the habit of throwing trash on the ground began. It was customary for people to throw trash or broken things away in their backyard or in the woods more than 100 years ago. However, those items were made of wood or clay that was biodegradable so it wasn’t a big deal. Sadly, once plastics were introduced it became a huge problem with negative effects on the environment. Aluminum cans, fast food wrappers, soda bottles, and plastic containers didn’t exist back then. These types of products are negatively impacting the environment for hundreds and maybe thousands of years. We must reduce this any way that we can.

The Movement to Reduce Trash in PV

Many residents in Puerto Vallarta want to do something about the trash issue. For instance, an American expat from California John Benus, who is currently living in Puerto Vallarta, created the “War Against Litter”, which is a movement to reduce trash in PV and neighborhoods. John Benus lived in Talpa de Allende previously, and he did a litter campaign there, too. In Marin County, California, he led the “Adopt a Highway” more than twenty years ago, to create a much cleaner and healthier environment. His philosophy is it is very important to share his vision of improving the environment with others.

Tania Gedmintas is a British expat and artist that has also been working on an important trash campaign called “Limpia Tu Barrio”, which means Clean Your Neighborhood in English.
