Xcalak is a small village on Mexico’s Caribbean coast with sprawling beaches and excellent fishing. But when the team from Bajio Sunglasses visited, they noticed a large amount of trash washing up on its shoreline. Though it’s unclear where this trash is coming from, some residents believe that cruise ships, or even nearby countries, dump their trash in this area of ocean. Bajio wanted to do something about it. It solicited the help of Liz, a 28-year-old local from a family of fly-fishers, who agreed to lead a beach-cleanup initiative with funding from Bajio. Check out this film to learn about the project.
