On Tuesday, January 6th, at 10:00 a.m., approximately 50 volunteers gathered at the Sayulita plaza for a massive town cleanup. Our new Delegado, Jesus Rodriguez, lead the effort with the support of the Vigilantes, while Eco Sayulita sponsored the effort.  This cleanup was a great start to the new year and to fostering community support and effort in keeping Sayulita clean.

“I am from Sayulita and my parents are from Sayulita. This is where my heart is and it is important to me to keep Sayulita beautiful and a nice place to live and visit. I am in the process of various ideas to keep our town clean. The idea for a town cleanup was in the works, so it’s great we could all join efforts,” shared Delegado Rodriguez.

Among the volunteers were Misti Groves and her two children, ages 6 and 7, who currently live in Sayulita. “Wherever we have lived, we have felt it was important to be a part of the community. Sayulita is really a unique and magical place and keeping it clean is really important. I also think that it is important to instill these values in our children at an early age,” shared Misti in regards as to why her and her children were volunteering.

Another child, Oliver De la Cueva, age 5, also from Sayulita, participated in the cleanup with his mother. When asked why it is important to keep Sayuilta clean, he said, “Because we live by the sea and to keep the animals healthy.”

The day was a big success as volunteers broke into small groups and spread out across Sayulita. Groups swept and picked up garbage in the plaza, and collected trash at the beach, along the river, and along the Sayuilta streets. The hard work paid off with approximately 55 bags of trash collected.

“I would like to say a special thanks to the Delegado for organizing and to Sayulimpia and Sayulita Life for transporting the garbage to the dump. Also thanks to El Espresso for providing coffee and ChocoBanana for donating banana bread,” said Lina Weissman from Eco Sayulita.
