The Azulita Project's Plastico

In the rural beach town of Los Llanos, Mexico, plastic waste has become a major problem. It is usually burned or discarded on the ground. More than the town's fair share washes down the river toward the ocean. The Azulita Project incentivizes plastic collection through a community-based sustainable business model. By engaging residents and visitors, the project actively removes up to 1 ton of pollution per day.
