On September 23rd 2018, the Olympus Tours Foundation as every year has joined the call of the international organization Ocean Conservancy and its representatives in Cancun promote awareness of the urgent need to take care of our planet before the worryingly increment of plastic pollution of the seas and littorals.
This year with the slogan “Refuse a single use” the volunteers of the Foundation met with more contingents of schools and associations to clean one of the most popular beaches in the hotel zone of Cancun, known as Punta Cancun. The most found residues have been cigarette butts, plastic packaging and pet bottles.
Responding to the call of the international organization Ocean Conservancy, on Sunday September 21st Olympus Tours Foundation, along with dozens of other companies, educational institutions, civil society organizations and public agencies, participated in the 29th edition of the International Coastal Cleanup that was organized in Cancun.
Members of Olympus Tours and their families participated in cleaning up Playa Marlin, showing their whole hearted commitment and the company’s philosophy for the care and conservation of the environment.
Olympus Tours Foundation, apart from the work crew on the beach, provided its facilities for the press conference this year, where the people of Cancun were invited to participate in the annual beach cleanup campaign.
International Beaches Cleanup Day has been instituted by the Ocean Conservancy, and is celebrated in over one hundred countries. On this day, thousands of people collect all kinds of garbage and solid waste from beaches and rivers, identifying their sources in order to modify the behaviors that causes pollution.
