The War Against Litter in Mascota Has Begun
In March 2021, Mr. John Benus granted an interview to the Vallarta Lifestyles editorial team, where he explained the details of “The War Against Litter”, a successful cleanup campaign carried out along our destination’s streets.
Now, in full cooperation with the Mascota’s municipal government (a Jalisco’s magical town located 2 hours by car from Puerto Vallarta) it has extended this effort to preserve the streets of this picturesque place clean.
“Currently, many high school students and several residents have volunteered for The War Against Litter,” explains Benus. “Once we have cleaned the center of this town, we are going to carry out another cleaning campaign in the nearby ranches.”
My Personal Philosophies
“It’s not how much money or education you have, it’s how much you share them to help others.”
“It’s the responsibility of everyone to keep our environment clean, no matter where you live or what country you from.
In addition to this laudable work, Benus develops “Education is the Solution,” an ambitious study plan that aims to be taught in the region schools to contribute to and/or improve the environmental education currently received by students in this area.
