BPM Green Team Initiatives
This year we are working with Lamerced Recreativa to reduce our environmental impact on the beautiful beaches and surrounding city of Playa Del Carmen and engage the collective consciousness of environmental and social responsibility.
• Cleaning Brigades: The cleaning brigades and separation of trash will happen at the surrounding beach áreas outside the venues, and once the event is over, we will work inside the venues.
• Beach Cleaning: When finishing the cleaning of the beach by hand, a sweeping machine will comb the beach for party debris on the sand, to avoid polluting the beautirful turqiouse waters of the Carribean Sea.
• Social Action: We will be generating over 47 job opportunities for the women of Playa del Carmen.
• Recyle/Reuse/Repurpose: We will be recycling all printed material and deliver them to local communities in Quintana Roo, that specialize in producing bags and other articles made by recycled material.
