Consulate in Juarez Joins Clean Up the World

Clean Up the World Juarez

On Saturday, October 28, employees of the U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez, as well as employees of neighboring businesses and members of the Youth Council, got together to clean up the vicinity of the Consulate as part of the “Clean Up the World” campaign promoted by the Juarez Limpio civil organization.

Through this campaign, Juarez Limpio seeks to inspire and empower communities to “clean, repair and conserve their environment.”  The Consulate’s Green Committee volunteers worked hard for a month to mobilize neighbors and businesses around the Consulate to make the area a cleaner place.

Nearly one hundred volunteers from the Consulate, Applebee’s, Clinica Medica Internacional, Dennys, Peter Piper Pizza, Quality Inn Hotel, Servicios Medicos de la Frontera, Servi-Compactos and Starbucks donated their time to clean and collect garbage for the benefit of our applicants, our neighbors and the customers of the participating businesses.
