Afton Latin America Community Story

Clean Up Our Mexico

Employees from Afton’s San Juan del Rio Plant took to the streets on the National Day of Trash Collection and cleaned up the area surrounding the plant. For the past nine years, Clean Up Our Mexico has hosted the event that encourages families, friends, and organizations to help clean up their communities.

Clean Up Our Mexico is a national awareness campaign focused on improving cleanliness in public places, promoting recycling and raising awareness with Mexican families about the problem of garbage and its effect on the environment. In addition to raising awareness on the benefits of reduce, reuse, recycle, it also promotes active participation in picking up trash with various competitions throughout the year.
