Mazatlan poinsettias placements on the Malecon a waste of money


Environmentalists criticize the purchase of pots at stratospheric prices when they could be grown in the municipal nursery

Mazatlan Sinaloa.- The spokesman of the Mazatlan Ecological Council, Sergio Valle Espinoza, questioned and criticized the municipal government for putting thousands of pots with Christmas Eve on the Malecon since it had to cost the treasury a stratospheric sum if it is taken into account that in the local market its price ranges between 100 and 150 pesos.

He said that if the Christmas Eve plantation had been planned for Christmas, the production of this plant in the municipal nursery of El Castillo would have been very economical.

Remember the Chemist who has a nursery and who can grow them, Parks and Gardens has a nursery there for El Castillo, he can grow many Christmas Eve and go out much cheaper and flood the Malecon on Christmas Eve if he wants

The former director of Ecology said that in the municipal nursery can grow from 3 thousand to 5 thousand Christmas Eve, enough to adorn the entire Malecon in the December season.

He clarified that Christmas Eve is a plant originating in Mexico, which occurs in the country, is not exotic or that comes from other parts of the world, so it is very feasible to produce them in the municipal nursery of Mazatlan.

On the other hand, he indicated that due to the location in pots, Christmas Eve could be subject to theft, especially during the Christmas season.

The mayor should know that during the Christmas season, in this specific case, there are people who come at low cost to take Christmas Eve from the Malecon, which were purchased at stratospheric prices, and that this nursery can produce at least 3,000 to 5,000 Good night

Sergio Valle regretted that money is still wasted for lack of knowledge, and that in the case of Christmas Eve, they will not be bought again next year, but that they are grown and planted directly on the Malecon, instead of leaving them in pots that they are easy to steal.


From 100 to 150 pesos costs a pot with Christmas Eve at the local market.
