This is an exciting and early stage project to clean up our oceans, so called, garbage patches. This was the brainchild of a then 16-year-old, Boyan Slat´s vision in 2013. On 3rd October 2018 the first system was towed into place in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. You can follow the project via social media and www.theoceancleanup.com/updates/
Educates globally, people of all ages and social situations, about the perception that plastic can be treated as “disposable”. The goal is to inspire people to act, in order to prevent plastic waste from entering our environment. You can learn more about Plastic Oceans here https://plasticoceans.org/ or watch the hard-hitting documentary film, “A Plastic Ocean” on Netflix.
We can each make a difference on Lanzarote too. Everyone can make small, easy changes to reduce their daily plastic usage.
You can find some ideas here: https://plasticoceans.org/infographic-reduce-plastic-pollution/.
We can also ensure that we recycle all of the plastic we do use, including the initiative of collecting bottle caps. You can find out more information here: https://lanzaroteinformation.co.uk/solidarity-caps-a-recycling-charitable-initiative/.
We will also be promoting and getting involved with the regular beach cleans run by Lanzarote Limpia: https://www.facebook.com/limpialanzarote/
We hope you will all join us in this cause in your own little way.
