Clean Beaches Honduras

We are retiring to Trujillo Honduras, an untouched corner of the world. We are truly in the most beautiful part of the world but the paradoxes are evident. Rainforest, Caribbean, wildlife, flora, white sandy Beaches the list goes on.
The majority of the people are hard working but poor. Education is a luxury not a standard. We noticed garbage is a huge issue. There is very little management of waste and there is piles in people's yards, on the side of streets and especially on the beaches. It washes down the mountainside into the Caribbean and washes up all along the shore.
Our project will do several things to solve this problem immediately but more importantly in the future as well.
We are planning on organizing local schools, both primary and high schools, plus sports teams and local community groups to pick up and bag garbage.
Now motivation is one of the issues here. So supplying garbage bags, paying 50 cents for regular garbage and $1.00 for recyclable waste will motivate the youngsters and adults. Getting "Special" shirts that recognize the most successful picker-uppers will create pride and awareness.
An important part of our plan is to educate, so everyone must sit through short videos on how garbage affects health, ecology and economy.
Our goal is to have a weekly garbage collection where everyone gets rewarded and educated.
Please donate whatever you can. We will be asking all the local businesses, expats, community associations and politicians to step up as well.
