PXP is a campaign to curb the trade of small weapons . We organized a voluntary weapon donation in Culiacán, a city in western Mexico, where 1527 guns were melted and made into 1527 shovels to plant 1527 trees. Currently we are working to replicate the project in more cities. This website is an archive of our story and tree plantings.
Palas por Pistolas is now in it's second phase. During 2012/2013 we are conducting a Bi-National Planting effort across the US and Mexico to plant more trees and raise awareness about gun and drug related violence both sides of the border.
