Beach Cleanup in Cozumel

 

I've been coordinating and hosting beach clean ups twice a month for one and a half year in Quintana Roo, Mexico. About a month ago I traveled to the island of Cozumel, where I found marine debris that traveled with ocean currents and landed in this beautiful island. As I recorded and took photographs, I knew I had to go back and host a beach clean up to celebrate World Ocean's Day with the local community. The amount of plastics and micro plastics is overwhelming, so I know that one beach clean up won't be enough. I will use this day to inform and educate about the importance of changing our daily habits. About how connected we all are in this Planet and the urgency of stop using plastic.
