Libre de Basura is a volunteer organization located in the beach communities on the pacific coast in Panama. It's mission is to inspire all individuals to show pride in their country by cleaning up existing litter and to stop littering. There is a crisis here, as in many other second and third world countries with garbage and its disposal. We provide the community with information regarding the proper disposal of garbage starting in the schools educating the upcoming citizens of Panama. Along with providing education, we also have a bi-weekly clean up schedule where concerned individuals, Panamanians and expats alike, gather to pick up litter along shorelines, roadways and local communities. Donations are needed for signs along the coast line reminding individuals to take their garbage with them, clean up supplies including gloves, garbage bags etc. and educational publications including community fliers. The organization was started by and consists of Canadian and US expats living in Panama. The local municipality has recently taken an active involvement in our efforts. Change starts one litter bag at a time.
