Yesterday was World Beach Cleanup Day and our neighborhood organization (AVACA) joined the effort. Beaches across Panama where selected by varies groups and by all accounts it was a good day for the environment and environmentally awareness in Panama. Unlike our previous cleanup efforts in Casco Viejo that had focused on cleanup and education, this project also performed an inventory of all the trash that was collected - trying to gather some data on what was washing up on these various beaches and thereby gaining some insight on where all this stuff comes from. We had a pretty good turnout, the weather cooperated (cloudy, not too hot) and the organizers were happy with the data collected.
