We are The Tide

Marea Verde is a non-profit association that since 2017 has been taking action and raising awareness on how to mitigate solid waste contamination in the rivers and coasts of Panama.

  • We developed pilot clean-up initiatives in the Juan Díaz River basin, and

  • We implement awareness campaigns and sustainable alternatives for waste disposal.


  • Promote a new generation of responsible citizens 

  • Sensitize about national environmental challenges

  • Innovate in the fields of conservation, maintenance and cleaning of rivers and mangroves, as well as in the transformation of recyclable waste

  • Strengthen alliances with civic groups and public and private institutions, in order to promote actions for change.  

  • Generate and provide information for decision-making through pilot projects that can also serve as models to be replicated in the future.

  • Promote the recycling culture and environmental responsibility

  • Influence the creation and application of related norms and legislation


"This organization arises

as a concern from the citizens of a community

in which, despite the cleaning campaigns carried out

each year, they continued seeing a lot of garbage

and a problem that

was not resolved."

"Teaching how to value the environment, is teaching how to value life."


Our Mission

Create pilot projects that inspire civic action to reduce garbage pollution in Panamá.

Our Vision

Support biodiversity conservation and healthy environment by addressing pollution in rivers, coasts and oceans.
