Tulums’ natural environment is proof that heaven is a place on earth, but only if we choose to help preserve it. It is our duty as conscious beings to plant the seeds for our sustainable future locally, and to cause a ripple effect that will propel our collective love and healing for the human race across our planet.
Care with Me is an ongoing effort to contribute to Tulum’s sustainability. While Tulum remains an ecological refuge from overdevelopment, its accelerated growth has expedited the need for immediate consideration and resolution of environmental concerns.
We are developing a solid waste management program based on diagnosis, strategy and operations to minimize the environmental impact of trash through reduction, separation and recycling. We are working in conjunction with the private sector, the municipality, NGOs and citizens to create a program that considers all stakeholders.
Art With Me * GNP “Presented by TANE” 2019 will host a variety of art experiences, talks and activities designed to encourage visitors to consider their use and disposal of plastic to activate change in habits while in Tulum and back home.
We are all connected. Tulum is a catalyst for consciousness. Art With Me shall facilitate its bloom.
