The participants on this iniciative to be held in Pochomil (including 40 local business) have already two beach cleanup days during Februrary.

Sandra Mejia, who heads up the organising committee at CANTUR ( Nicaraguan Chamber of Micro, Small and Medium- Tourism Businesses) and is a business woman in the tourism sector and owner of the tour operator company NTOUR affirmed that "this is a project that will be replicated in other beaches across Nicaragua. It's about taking action instead of just criticising problems like discarded rubbish in tourist areas".
