Get to know us and participate!

We are a community in El Sargento and La Ventana, Baja California Sur, Mexico, concerned about waste management and the impact it has on the environment at an ecological level.

Mission

To promote participation within the community of La Ventana Bay, individually or collectively, for the preservation of ecological balance and the protection of the environment in El Sargento and La Ventana through educative strategies for integral waste management.

Vision

Instill waste separation and management in the community, transforming the paradigm and awareness around the life cycle of waste and garbage.

Provide adequate management of Urban Solid Waste generated in the community, preventing its final destination from being the local landfill.

Our Pillars

Waste Management

In the short-term, we aim to greatly reduce the amount of waste destined for the dump.

Entirely volunteer-run, we host weekly recycling drop-off service, monthly town clean-ups, bi-annual garage sales, and annual waste mitigation operations for the influx of people who enjoy our town during the holidays. Using our limited resources, we transform what we can into usable construction materials that are available for purchase. Soon we will be offering collection services for your recyclables.

Education

Planting seeds for the future generation is foundational to our mission.

We understand that in order to create lasting change, we must change the knowledge and culture around consumption and waste practices. We engage with local schools to educate the next generation on proper waste mitigation practices. We do this by implementing recycling programs, hosting environmental education field trips to engage the children with the ecosystems they are a part of, and involving the local children in our volunteer operations.

Future Vision

As our town grows exponentially, we strive to implement lasting change to ensure a sustainable future for all who inhabit this beautiful ecosystem.

Our long term goals address the needs of our growing community. We hope to build a recycling facility that will be able to accommodate our future population. We hope to engage with local retailers to reduce the amount of waste brought here in the first place. We hope to inspire everyone who lives or visits here to be responsible cohabitants of a rare and beautiful ecosystem, and to have systems in place to support that lifestyle sustainably.
