You can help recycle over 100 tons of waste!

Thank you so much for your support of our project to place 67 reusable recycling bins along the EcoRomeria route. Most of the over 2 million participants in this pilgrimage will set out on foot in less than a week -- on August 2 -- and EARTH and its volunteers are working hard to get things in place. As of this time, we have over 1,500 volunteers who will participate in the event -- from universities, youth organizations, government entities, and private corporations. In addition, we have collaboration from the Ministry of the Environment of Costa Rica and the Municipalities of Cartago, La Union, and Curridabat. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to support the placement of these reusable recycling bins that will help manage over 100 tons of waste. Please consider sharing our project with your friends and colleagues. Working together, we can keep tons of waste from entering Costa Rica's rainforests and rivers. Thanks again for your support!
