Recycling in Playa del Carmen

Recycling bins have popped up everywhere in Playa del Carmen. We can now recycle cans, plastic, paper, cardboard, and glass. El Parque la Ceiba in Playa del Carmen also takes used batteries. This is great news. Maybe I just get excited very easily. I believe I mentioned before that the grocery stores are also promoting the use of fabric bags.

I found another find the other day while browsing through Parque la Ceiba’s monthly market featuring local venders. Are you ready? Plastic bags made out of corn starch! Isn’t that cool? They have the bags in two sizes and offer disposable plates made out of sugar cane! They also have disposable cutlery and some other containers made out of I am not sure what – maybe more sugar cane?

The company that makes them is called Tierra Natural and their website is Let me know if you would like the contact email of the local Playa del Carmen representative.

Just call me a proud recycler. I may not be perfect at it but my goal is to improve every day.

Enjoy the Adventure!

With great love, Suzanne

That's fantastic, and very exciting. We need some of that in Cozumel. Things are getting off the ground a bit more slowly here. We recently wrote about it on our blog:
