As World Ocean Day approaches, it's important to recognize the impact that our actions have on the ocean and its inhabitants. Over the past three decades, more than 20 million bottle caps and lids have been found during beach cleanups around the world, making it one of the top 5 deadliest ocean trash items for sea life.
At Club Med Cancun, we decided to take action and make a difference. Last year, we partnered with El Banco de Tapitas, a nonprofit organization that collects, stores, and recycles plastic lids of all kinds. Their mission being to generate economic resources to support different care programs for children diagnosed with cancer.
El Banco de Tapitas has collected around 800 tons of plastic taps and has provided support to more than 420 patients nationwide. By working together, we can make a real impact and help protect our oceans and the amazing creatures that call it home. Join us in celebrating World Ocean Day by taking action and supporting initiatives like El Banco de Tapitas. Together, we can create a healthier planet for generations to come.
