Guatemala is often called el país de la eterna primavera, or “the land of eternal spring,” because of its mild climate, rich cultural history, and diverse flora and fauna. In fact, the name Guatemala comes from the Nahuatl word Cuauhtēmallān, which translates to lugar de muchos árboles in Spanish or “place of many trees” in English. Unfortunately, plastic pollution has a devastating impact that’s changing the landscape and quality of life for people in Guatemala.
