As part of World Environment Day, the Colima municipal government launched a beautification campaign on Wednesday for parks, gardens, boulevards, and playgrounds around the city.
Mayor Federico Rangel Lozano said that his administration had also started an awareness campaign among the city’s residents to help combat littering and pollution.
“We hope that citizens will help out in cleaning up the city, creating a virtuous circle that will allow us to have cleaner and more pleasant public spaces” he said. Regarding the beautification program, Rangel Lozano said that he hoped there would be immediate results so that the campaign could be evaluated by the end of the month at the latest. “We want to show what a clean Colima looks like and leave a better environment for future generations,” he added.
He also praised the staff of the Public Services Department, “who have expressed their interest in taking part in this challenge” adding that he was confident environmental organizations would participate “in this great task, which will result in greater well-being for both residents and visitors to Colima.”
