sargazo

En Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, el sargazo es algo más que una plaga.

El año pasado, el emprendedor Omar Vázquez supo qué hacer con este desecho marítimo. Construir casas.

Su proyecto se hizo realidad. Mónica, quien perdió su casa en un incendio, es la primera beneficiada.

Mónica Pérez, dueña una de las casas de sargazo, informó: "Se me había quemado mi casa y me empecé a sentir mal y más mal y el doctor me estuvo atendiendo y entonces el me trajo al señor Don Omar y cuando me empezaron a decir cómo me iban a poner mi casa y del sargazo".

Se trata de una construcción de 40 metros cuadrados de un solo nivel con techo de lámina y acabado rustico en sus paredes exteriores.

La vivienda está construida con casi dos mil bloques de adobe de sargazo, sin necesidad de utilizar cemento u otro aditivo para su unión.

De acuerdo a su creador, la edificación no rebasa los 150 mil pesos y tiene una vida útil de hasta 120 años.

Los beneficiarios de estas casas, serán personas de bajos recursos.

Omar Vázquez Sánchez dijo: "El proyecto en si ahorita es de 10 casas donde nada más es la de Mónica la de la señora Julia y tenemos varios candidatos aquí en el municipio".

La gran acumulación de sargazo que viven las costas del norte de Quintana Roo actualmente se ha convertido en un problema para muchos, sin embargo para los emprendedores es una oportunidad para sacarle provecho.
