Faced with the ever-growing issue of garbage accumulation in the arroyos, and conscient that most of this garbage will end up in the Sea of Cortez when the peninsula gets hit by the next powerful hurricane, and with the hurricane season upon us, concerned citizens have lately taken the initiative to organize cleaning campaigns, often with logistical support from the local government.

Crossing most of Cabo San Lucas close to its most transited and populous area, the arroyo Salto Seco is particularly vulnerable.

A group of concerned local chefs, known as "los chefs de club de Toby", started cleaning the arroyo on August 7, doing a wonderful job with limited resources.

But the affected area is large, which prompted me to organize a mega cleaning campaign, inviting all the groups formal and informal, and associations, to join forces and attempt to clean up the area reaching to the freeway to the airport, with logistical support from the public services of the delegation of Cabo San Lucas.

The support has been overwhelming, with "los chefs del club de Toby", C4C "Clean 4 Cabo", “Huellas Verdes”, Canirac, la Asociación de hoteles de Los Cabos and the San Lucas delegation supporting the project, and more expected to join. For this mega cleaning to achieve its objectives, we need lots of volunteers.

The area to be cleaned is one of 3 particularly affected arroyo zones in Cabo San Lucas. Further cleaning campaigns are being scheduled. We will appreciate your support.

Thank you
