World Cleanup Day
Taking place in September, Amics de la Terra, Don Dobbin, Mar de Fondo, Save our Sea and Save the Med joined forces to clean the beach in different parts of the island. Here, there was a focus on collecting data that would become part of a global database.
In a show of strength and unity, volunteers and partners worldwide came together to rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from Mallorca’s beautiful beaches, as well as rivers, forests, and streets worldwide.
Through this global initiative, it is important to remember that everything starts with your actions and decisions. Some of ‘Save the Med’s’ recommendations include buying local products of KM0 in local shops. Also they recommend rejecting single-use plastics and investing in reusable materials.
