The campaign of awareness of the state of the sea bottom starts in Blanes (Spain)
In a festive mood, voluntary scuba divers have collected:
|Baby wipes and sanitary towels||8|
|Cans and other metals||8|
|Pipes of PVC||15|
|Sheet of fibreglass||15|
The waste has been classified at the stand set on the promenade. Passers-by were informed about the problems related to the waste and how changing the habit of using the toilette as a wastepaper basket can contribute to the preservation of the environment.
Today's event is the first part of the Per Focs la mar també brilla! campaign. It will be followed by an exhibition done with posters produced by the S'Agulla association. It will be displayed at libraries and schools of the area to make people aware of the problem of plastic at sea and to promote a change in people's habits till the end of June 2017.
This project is supported by CUP of Blanes within their campaign of support to local associations Diners al carrer (Money in the street), the diving centre Blanes-Sub, the Catalonian Federation of Underwater Activities (FECDAS) and Blanes' Town Hall.
We would like to thank volunteers, collaborators and sponsors to make this initiative possible and, to the media for disseminating it!
