Nosara celebrated a great Earth Day with the participation of nearly a hundred people who managed to give a new face to the area around the dump.
On Saturday April 21, the Nosara Recycling Association organized the event that achieved the following: removed nearly 1,000 bags of garbage (which had been thrown around the landfill over the past 5 years), collected recyclables, planted trees and bushes in decorated tires, and posted signs to encourage people not to litter.
Efforts do not end there. The association is working on putting up a sign with the days and times that the gate will be open, providing workshops on recycling and composting (see box below "Community Leaders"), promoting the importance of paying the garbage bill on time and motivating the whole community to be part of the change.
All these efforts are essential to the success of the Collection Center that will soon enter the construction phase.
The Association will give public thanks to each of the participants. However, we would also like to give thanks here to those businesses who supported the initiative: Ferretería Nosara, Harmony Hotel, LaGarta Lodge, Marlin Bill's, Casa Tucan, Century 21, Del Mar Academy, Nosara Yoga Institute, ASADA de Playas Nosara, ASADA de Nosara, KayaSol, El Punto Surf Shop, Nosara Home Rentals, Constructora Juan Bermudez's, Belca, Farmacia Nosara, Nosara Surf Academy, Campo Alegre, Nosara B&B, Asociación Desarrollo de Nosara, Asociación Cívica de Nosara, Cruz Roja, Grupo de adulto mayor, Comités de Bandera Azul Ecológica.
Thanks Nosara! We should be proud when driving along the road that passes in front of the dump, but more importantly it is the duty of all of us to keep it beautiful.
