About Us

Azul Sayu, formally known as "Centro de Reciclaje de Sayulita," is a local, not-for-profit recycling program. Approximately 50% of our trash can be recycled in Mexico, and Azul Sayu focuses on local education to reduce and recycle and provides local recycling services.

Azul Sayu was created with the goal of significantly reducing trash in Sayulita by promoting the reduction and reuse of items and providing recycling services in town. The recent name change highlights the organization's current and future goals of including local conservation efforts to ensure our amazing ocean remains blue and clean and that our jungles remain green and thriving.

Azul Sayu has expanded services to include San Ignacio, provide free educational services to local schools and businesses, recycle bins and pick-up services for schools in Sayulita and San Ignacio, and expand public collection sites in Punto Azules. Azul Sayu works closely with restaurants and homes to reduce consumption and be conscious of how products are purchased.

During the high season, the program recycles a ton of plastic, glass, and cardboard. In an effort to increase recycling options on the main beach, Azul Sayu partnered with Campamento Mar y Vida Summer Camp to restore and reinstall an amazing fish sculpture that can collect plastic bottles and keep them out of our oceans and landfills. Azul Sayu operates 6 days a week with 3 full-time staff and 2 vehicles.

Items are collected, sorted, and recycled in Mexico, making this a sustainable process.

Donations are tax-deductible in the US, and can be made here.
