As every year, Olympus Tours Foundation actively participated in the “Hour of the Earth”, the international event driven by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), which aims to raise public awareness about the need for action on climate change and contaminant emissions, as well as energy saving and reducing light pollution.
To issue this year, Olympus Tours Foundation sponsored and promoted the participation of the students from the International American School (IAS), such as friends and volunteers from the Foundation, to the various activities that the WWF office in Cancun and the General Direction of Ecology in the Municipality of Benito Juarez organized in the framework of this international event.
On Saturday, March 16th, along with volunteer students from the IAS, Olympus Tours Foundation participated in cleaning the beaches of Punta Brava in Puerto Morelos, an important nesting site for sea turtles.
On Saturday March 23rd at the time the Olympus Tours´ nonessential lights went out, the students and other friends of the Foundation attended the lights off event in the Plaza de la Reforma, and like every year, with this symbolic act, people, institutions and companies are showing their commitment to take concrete action over climate change.
Finally, on Sunday 24th, all of us replaced our motorized vehicles, for bicycles in order to “ecologically drive” the streets of the downtown area of Cancun.
