On Thursday July 30th the Olympus Tours Foundation received its participation certificate for taking part in the International Beach Cleanup (LIP) 2015. This global event organized by Ocean Conservancy brought together more than 790,000 people around the world to clean 40.538 kilometers of coastline and collect 8 million kilos of garbage.
In Quintana Roo, a state of the Mexico Republic where Cancun is located, 8,183 volunteers participated walking 9.7 kilometers of coastline where they collected 18,185.60 kilos of garbage. These numbers are a result of the joint work of educational institutions, companies and civil associations like Olympus tours Foundation, that are committed to the environmental conservation.
The 2016 edition of the International Beach Cleanup will be held in September and of course the Olympus tours Foundation will be present.
