The rainy days of October didn’t stop Tamarindo Recycles from collecting nearly 1.5 tons of material this past Saturday. Over one-hundred individuals from Tamarindo and the surrounding communities fought the potholes in the roads to bring their recyclable material to recycling day. We had a record number of volunteers from the community, Las Baulas National Marine Park, the Langosta National Wildlife Refuge and Country Day School. This recycling day also marked the first collaboration with the Municipality of Santa Cruz who sent four workers, including Engineer Berny Leal who is in charge of waste management. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a productive relationship between the committee and the Municipality.

"Trashion Fashion" Event

In order to raise money to build a collection site and raise awareness among Tamarindo residents, the Tamarindo Recycles committee is planning a recycling fashion show event entitled “Trashion Fashion.” The event is being co-organized by local designers Kata Kis, from Papaya con Leche, Petra Beuthner, of Uno Solo, and artists Jaguart.

The fashion show will feature original designs from the artists that are made from recycled material. Some designs will be extravagant and over the top, while others are items that anybody can use or wear.

The Trashion Fashion event will be held at Bar1 on September 11. Music is being done by Fabrice Vanegas. Bar1 will be donating a portion of the bar sales and additionally there will be a raffle and a cover charge benefiting the Tamarindo Recycles committee.
