Vallarta: Clean It Up!

Clean It Up!

One great thing about Puerto Vallarta is the expat effort to contribute to the community. There are many events, including planting flowers, food drives for orphanages, shelters and animal rescue groups. One of our favorites, because it has such an immediate impact, is the endeavor to keep the streets clean. There are several groups gathering energy to collect trash and they’re getting a fair amount of media coverage, as well.


We are thrilled to see new groups spring up from time to time, and the latest is the Colonia Clean-UpEmiliano Zapata, doing their part in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. They had a very successful crowd last month and are scheduled for another clean-up on August 4, which is a Saturday. Anyone can join in to help out, and they plan to extend this into high season, meeting every first Saturday.


The meeting point is at Lazaro Cardenas 421. That’s between Calles Aguacate and Jacarandas. They start at 9:30 am and go until 11:30 am, meeting back at the starting point for lunch and beverages, which are provided by the organizers. You can find a link on Facebook to let them know you’ll be there, so they have somewhat of a head count.

Colonia Clean-Up will provide garbage bags, tongs, and gloves. Each person or team is assigned a specific are, all within the border of the colonia’s streets. If you want to be super efficient, you can divide recycle from garbage, and even separate plastic from aluminum cans.


Some of us would really like to help with this great community contribution but can’t deal with the heat, don’t do well walking the sometimes tough cobblestone streets, maneuvering the curbs and sidewalks. We know people who love to help in any way they can but aren’t in town. For those who want to make a donation, $100 pesos will hire a neighborhood kid to represent you (only you will be aware of this representative, but everyone loves the kids being a part of the movement). This is such a great cause and keeps us in touch with the neighbors, too. For information on how to make your donation, check out the Facebook page for Colonia Clean-Up – Emiliano Zapata.
