In addition to our ecological lifestyle, Ekumal has become fully emerged into the social movement against plastic pollution of our oceans and beaches. With beach clean-ups & new volunteers every day, we are growing a network of enthusiastic collaborators aiming toward saving marine life and land biodiversity. 

We as part of Mas Amor A.C. and Maramor.org associations are actively participating in beach clean-ups, we push forward in politics, and we share knowledge with everyone we can. We reduce our plastic daily and enforce new green technologies, and mostly we want to share the message of LOVE, love for everyone, and for our environment. 

In addition to our ecological lifestyle, Ekumal has become fully emerged into the social movement against plastic pollution of our oceans and beaches. With beach clean-ups & new volunteers every day, we are growing a network of enthusiastic collaborators aiming toward saving marine life and land biodiversity. 

At Ekumal, we are offering discount nights in our domes in exchange for 5 garbage bags filled with plastic from the ocean/beach.  


We promote ideas among the community on holidays or weekends to attempt to lower the use of plastic. We have to be a part of the change and we have everything we need to reverse the massive pollution we have created. 


Mar Amor is a unique project, developed in the region of the Mexican  Caribbean, which is experimenting with an innovative way to reuse plastic waste captured at sea, carried out by several partners such as: 

  •  Local fishing companies

  • Local beach cleaning foundations and organizations 

  • The government officials of Playa del Carmen, Tulum y Cancun 

  • The communities surrounding the area 

 As well as individual volunteers collecting trash daily that is washing up on our beaches, marine ports, and floating in the ocean.

Once we have collected a large amount, the waste will be transformed and reused to create other objects of daily use. Upcycling is the magic word here, reuse what appears not  
to be needed anymore.


Apart from upcycling, the MasAmor and MarAmor project has  
a focus on making the general public aware of what is happening.  As well as offering solutions to our everyday plastic use.  


They are creating a conscious community, aimed to get  
everyone involved in the solution. Much of the waste collected was used to construct the Akumal hotel. 


We are currently recycling nearly 100 kg a month. We are hoping to triple that and add to the recycling or upcycling production.
