A wetland created here by conscious human intervention holds out the prospect of conserving water and protecting the environment in Mexico.
“The tools to create the wetland are cutting-edge technology and some based on nature itself,” Jesus Lucatero Diaz, director of Public Affairs, Communication and Sustainability for Arca Continental Mexico, told Efe Thursday in Cihuatlan, a coastal municipality in the western state of Jalisco.
Arca Continental is a unit of Industria Mexicana de Coca-Cola, which provides funding for the project in line with a commitment to return to nature 100 percent of the water it uses to make soft drinks.
The Cihuatlan wetland is one of four planned nationwide.
Arca hopes to forge partnerships with local authorities and communities to promote environmental protection, Lucatero Diaz said.
“For us it’s important to find allies who give impetus to these programs. It’s the golden triangle: to find an association among government, society and companies,” he said.
