STOP MARINE DEBRIS BEFORE IT GETS BACK TO THE OCEAN
We are taking action in Cantabria and Asturias (northern Spain)
Thousands of plastics and all kinds of garbage continue to appear. All interspersed with wood sticks, trunks and plant disposals from the last flood. We do not want this to fragment and return to the sea. It is time to take action now.
Shown below there is a small list of the most affected areas to help. We enclose the schedules of the local NGOs or administrations organizing the plastic collections. We also offer some recommendations for anyone who wants to get involved safely.
AFFECTED ZONES / BEACH CLEAN UP’S SCHEDULE
We will provide garbage bags to collect all marine debris.
*Data collected by our own activists.
** Please confirm any change or new event available in Cantabria y Asturias.
