Plastic Free Travel in Mexico
So we finally arrived in Mexico 3 weeks ago. First week we explored Mexico City, stayed two nights in Cancun and now since two weeks we are in Playa Del Carmen. It is a very touristic town, but we are enjoying good internet;), the heat, the tropical rain. Eating yummy tacos and drinking fresh delicious juices. Meeting a lot of friendly and likeminded people. Doing Beach Clean Ups and watching pelicans who are diving for fish.
Another trip that shows me just how important it is to reduce our plastic consumption. To see the masses of people on the beach where turtles used to lay eggs is disturbing and sad, but that's something I can't change...
7 Tips how to organize a clean up
Why we all should pick up trash?
Refusing plastic and reducing trash is one step to a cleaner planet, removing the trash thats already out there is the next step. Plastic is not biodegradable so it will always be out there if it won't get removed. Plastic is breaking down to micro plastic so it will always be around even if we can't see it anymore.
International Coastal Cleanup Day
Have you heard about the International Coastal Cleanup Day?
The very first Coastal Clean Up took place in 1989 in Texas.
My 5 minute clean ups in Tallinn, Estonia.
5 minute beach clean ups
Today has been one of those days where I couldn´t really stop picking up trash from the beach in Tallinn. There were just so much plastic around.
I normally just have one bag with me to fill, because I normally just pick up what I see walking by. But I couldn´t stop this time. I don´t know, its been one of those days.
