JG Group Sponsors Clean-Up in Colonia Emiliano Zapata

Alejandra Pena - The JG Group
June 30, 2018

Join in the calling for us all to raise awareness by gathering a group of volunteers monthly - many of them neighborhood kids - to do a clean sweep of our colonia. (JG Group)

The JG Group invites all residents and visitors alike who love Puerto Vallarta to contribute to the clean-up efforts throughout the city to stop the flow of garbage into the Bay of Banderas.

On the first Saturday of each month, meeting at 9:30 am at The JG Group office, volunteers receive garbage bags, tongs, and are assigned a street in the Col. Emiliano Zapata. Working from the beach to the Rio Cuale from the west to east, and from the Rio Cuale to Manuel M. Dieguez going north to south teams of 2 hit the streets. Volunteers fill up their garbage bags with litter that are then retrieved by a volunteer driving through the colonia following the teams' routes.

"People are energized," shares Dean McConkey. "There are several initiatives throughout Vallarta, Limpia tu Barrio raises awareness of the trash we create and the trash left on the streets by calling on everyone to take a bag when going for a walk or a run. They encourage 10 minutes, 1 bag, 1 photo to tag with #limpiatubarrio. We join in the calling for us all to raise awareness by gathering a group of volunteers monthly - many of them neighborhood kids - to do a clean sweep of our colonia. We are also having trash cans built that we will position in key locations. Most often, trash ends up on the streets because people have no where else to put it. There are other initiatives throughout the city. As many as we can create, the better!"

"Most people will agree that education is key," added Julie Guerrero. "We change mindsets by modeling the behavior and Being the Change. The comments we hear after our Clean-ups are consistent. People feel good when they contribute to the city we have all grown to love, whether visiting or living in the colonia."

Anyone interested in starting their 1st Saturday of the month by joining in the Colonia Clean-Up in the Col. Emiliano Zapata can contact The JG Group Office at 322 688 2146 or by sending a message to confirm your attendance. The hot dogs and fixings lunch is on us after the clean-up!

The JG Group: Vallarta Real Estate Advisors is an AMPI-registered real estate professional services team offering representation in the Bay of Banderas.
