2020 Todos Santos Recycling Punto Verde

This is 2020. Are you recycling yet?

 

Dear locals, residents and visitors… Friends.  

 

We live in a portion of the world where we can tap into Nature's wonders instantly. Our little piece of paradise has been growing rapidly and the current waste management infrastructure is insufficient, threatening our land, our health, and our heritage for future generations.

 

It is well known we have periodic fires in the dump, due to the lack of interest, education, and the excessive use of single use materials in our day to day life.  The need of a paradigm shift in this area is a must!

 

Alex Miró is the heart and soul of Punto Verde, the one recycling center we have in an area where more than 10,000 persons produce waste every day. Alex runs this operation as a Non-Profit called Ecorrrevolución A. C. , and today, we are asking you for your help!

There hasn´t been a consolidated channel of support for this project so we are here again making a pledge so we can solidify this important project for the community.

 

After these heavy economic months for all of us, it is time to start to see the bigger picture and make our best decision and invest in our health and our future. 

 

Alex Miró needs our help once again so he can continue with the ongoing effort he has been doing tirelessly since 2010.

 

The money is going to be used to keep paying the staff to keep the Punto Verde recycling center open and operating!

 

Right now, the shortage of donations has impacted the Recycling center to a point where it has becoming impossible to keep it open

 

We have an anonymous donor who has pledged to TRIPLE MATCH, the money raised only through this GoFundMe campaign up to $5,000! So every dollar you donate today will have 3 times the impact! The $5,000 becomes $20,000 with the match. We can’t let this opportunity slip away. 

 

Help today!

 

Other ways to donate that do not qualify for the triple match, but are also greatly appreciated are as follows:

 

A tax-deductible donation in the US: you can do so through the Friends of Ecorrrevolucion hosted by The International Community Foundation at the following link: https://donate.icfdn.org/npo/eco-rrrevolucion-ac

 

A tax-deductible donation in Mexico: Ecorrrevolucion is a Mexican NGO and can provide documentation for your write off. Please email here, or come to the Punto Verde recycling center to make your direct donation. 

 

If you would like to make a direct local donation, please send a message or stop by Punto Verde and donate directly to Alex.

Let's keep Alex and the recycling center going as we work to create a zero-waste future!
