Dear friends of Sayulita, Version en Espanol al calce.
At the root of every tree, just like every town and every community, lies it's essence, foundation, and values.. the culture and the language, but also the people who come together to make this possible.
COME TOGETHER FOR OUR ZERO WASTE CAMPAIGN
The challenges of our world are constantly growing: Industry and technology, commercialism and competition, consumption, supply and demand. The rapid and uncontrolled growth of our small communities and towns, cities and nations are the main cause of environmental contamination but also of the social and economic problems which threaten our quality of life, and climate change, and damages to the environment.
Sayulimpia was founded in 2007, with the clear mission to contribute to the preservation of the environment by promoting recycling and improving the waste collection system in our community of Sayulita.This has not been easy. Cost and effort, trial and error, but we are sure that with support from all members and visitors of our community and the creation of an intense educational campaign to spread the word of the importance of "reduce, reuse, and recycle", we can fulfill our Vision:
Our Vision is to become a model of environmental community through the Campaign
"Zero Waste" beginning in November, 2009 .
Join us! Your participation in this project is very important.
Together we can help
To Protect rivers, seas, and our tropical jungles of the Sierra de Vallejo where Sayulita is located, which has the 5th largest biodiversity of flora, fauna, and marine life in the world. To Maintain the natural life cycle of life to avoid global warming and planetary ecological disasters, all for the love and respect of the future generations
We all consider Sayulita to be our home. You can help us keep it clean.

Our collection team has a difficult job but if we're organized we can help them. We are asking you to separate the waste from your house starting today so you can reduce, reuse, and recycle. The night before collection dates put your recyclables, compostables, and trash in it's usual place for pickup. More baskets and containers will be available for you the morning after collections. Or you can bring your recyclables and compostables to our collection center located on the Punta Mita Highway one kilometer west of Highway 200.
En la raíz de toda palmera, de cada árbol, asi como de todo pueblo y cada comunidad, está la esencia, la base y sus valores.. la cultura, y el idioma, pero también las personas que se unen para hacer esto posible.
