COSTA RICIAN EARTH HOUR AMBASSADORS COMPLETE IWIYW
Congratulations to Earth Hour ambassadors Warner Rojas, Giovanni Rodriguez, and Oscar Rodriguez for demonstrating their commitment to the planet and completing their I Will If You Will challenge.
“We will cross Costa Rica from coast to coast if 50 employees from Banco Nacional headquarters commit themselves to not using the elevator for one week,” they said.
Once their goal was reached, the journey began by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the port city of Limón as their starting point. They have since trekked nearly 300 kilometers all the way around Costa Rica, passing stunning landscapes, towns and schools, raising awareness on climate change.
After braving the blazing sun, high temperatures and rough terrain, they finally reached the Pacific Ocean in beach town of Jacó, where the local community welcomed them a celebration and presented them with the keys to the city.
This challenge has definitely been one of our Earth Hour favourites.
Well done guys!
