Today was the annual No Mas Basura (No More Trash) event in La Ventana. Held the Friday before the upcoming La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo, No Mas Basura is a community effort to clean up the towns of La Ventana and El Sargento.

After meeting this morning at the police station in El Sargento, groups of local schoolchildren, resident Americans and Canadians, and visiting kiteboarders and windsurfers spread out armed with gloves and trash bags.

After two hours of cleaning, the town is noticably cleaner and the garbage truck collected the large bags left at the side of the road.

Everyone met up back at the police station for refreshments and a few awards. This event aims to teach children about the importance of not littering and has made a real difference in this town over the past few years!
