Volunteers Encourage Visitors to Recycle
• MINAET closed vehicle entrance to Pelada beach

By Arianna McKinney

Nosara’s volunteer firefighters, red cross and others spent Semana Santa doing something a little different: at the five corners near Pelada beach, they stopped passing vehicles to distribute more than 1,000 biodegradable transparent trash bags to encourage visitors and locals alike to recycle and keep Nosara clean.

Joe Pinheiro, a volunteer firefighter, explained that the effort was being made to help keep the beaches and the town clean and to teach people to recycle.  From a firefighters perspective he highlighted the importance: “less trash, less fires, less danger.”

The effort was sponsored by Nosara Sostenible (Sustainable), Nosara Civic Association and Nosara Asociacion de Desechos y Reciclajo (Nosara Association of Garbage and Recycling).

A note accompanying each bag carried the following message in English and Spanish: “Welcome to the Beaches of Nosara, a sustainable community. Please use this transparent bag to deposit CLEAN recyclables ONLY: plastic, glass, tetra-pak and aluminum. You can leave it in the designated areas or take it back with you when you leave town. Trash is a public matter. Thank you very much for visiting and helping us to maintain Nosara clean and special.”


Also, in another effort to protect nature, officials of the National Wildlife Refuge of Ostional and community residents closed the access to Peladas Beach to prevent vehicles from driving onto the beach. This action is to promote the security of campers and visitors to the Refuge and for the welfare of the turtles whose nests are destroyed by these vehicles passing along the beach
