Beach Clean Up
We are proud to announce that we recently completed the first project in our Beach Clean Up Initiative. This is a part of our overall Sustainability Program to help lessen our impact on the environment, make real change, and inspire our community to do the same.
As an oceanfront resort, we strive to maintain the Blue Flag by keeping our beaches clean.
The Costa Rica Blue Flag Ecological Program extols the environmental protection efforts and practices of local organizations, schools, and citizens. Florblanca Resort is an active participant in the Blue Flag program and our Beach Clean Up day helped first and foremost to clear debris and remove harmful trash from the beach, but it also brought together members of our community and resort guests in a positive, unified clean up effort.
Events like this help build community and raise awareness about the importance of protecting our environment.
We asked Maricel Segura, Sustainability Director at Florblanca, to describe the Beach Clean Up Day for us. Here is what she had to say:
On 16 November, the first beach cleanup of the 2013-14 season was performed. We are enormously grateful to who participated in the activity:
– Daniela Vargas y su esposo (Restaurant Manager)
– Clariselda Roque (Kitchen)
– Veronica Wessel (Reservation Manager)
– Sofia Mora (Hermosa Valley School)
And a very special thanks to our guests Diane Henry and Terrye Underwood to take a space on your vacations to be part of this initiative, you made the difference!!
Thank you to Maricel for organizing this effort and to everyone who participated. It is truly an important initiative and we look forward to future Beach Clean Up events.
