- Over 15 beaches welcomed dozens of volunteers from several different sectors to the traditional Riviera Nayarit Beach Cleanup Network, which this time around is receiving a special boost from TV Azteca’s national cleanup campaign.
The 29th edition of the Riviera Nayarit’s Beach Cleanup Network (BCN), which is taking place on Saturday, October 8, 2016, will welcome special guest TV Azteca and its massive national cleanup campaign titled Limpiemos Nuestro México (Let’s Cleanup Our Mexico).
“We’re still carrying out the monthly cleanup of the beaches in the Riviera Nayarit, but this time around it’s extra special because in addition to raising awareness about the need to care for the environment, we’re also getting fantastic exposure in the domestic market via the audience of TV Azteca, one of the country’s top networks,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Limpiemos Nuestro México encourages millions of people around the country to pick up tons of garbage and try to generate a global shift in favor of the environment. It visited the Riviera Nayarit for the first time in 2014 and has come back with even more energy to strengthen the BCN.
