Maria has been active in the environmental sector since 1989, when she opened the first recycling center in her state, Queretaro.  It is still functioning this day, and has drawn international recognition.  Her association, Raices y Semillas, is a non profit organization that demonstrates in practical ways the efficiency and importance of environmental awareness.  It was founded by Maria and a group of collaborators in 2000, and operates out of a center for environmental education, TERRARIO.  It also addresses issues such as healthy food production, composting, water conservation, plant production and a host of others.  People of any age are invited to learn. She has also helped found several environmental groups.  Among these is the Ambientalistas del Estado de Queretaro, A.C., which has since protected national parks, established 13 recycling centers, and brought the Municipality's waste management and disposal systems into compliance with international requirements.  She is also a founder of FIQMA, a Municipal Trust for Environmental Protection. Maria's work has had a tremendous impact on the environmental sustainability in Queretaro and beyond, and she has no intention to slow down.  She is currently working on a new facility with walls made from glass bottles, and a water system purified by plants, which will in turn feed more plant life.  She plans to continue the environmental education of the world.
