“It’s not just about the planet we leave to future generations, but also the generations which will be left to the planet”
The ECOALF Foundation participates in different activities to raise awareness about littering and its negative impact on marine ecosystems, as well as the role played by the circular economy in the search for solutions. Lectures are given all over the world and we participate in conferences, workshops, talks and exhibitions for all types of audiences, including the youngest ones.
“Para que la basura no llegue al mar”
In 2018, Lanjarón and the ECOALF Foundation joined forces to launch this pilot project whose goal is to prevent coastal litter from reaching the sea and becoming marine debris. For this purpose, a series of points were selected on the Andalusian coast. Detailed cleaning actions and characterizations are carried out at these locations to improve knowledge about this problem and propose future solutions.
“Decálogo Ciudadano contra las basuras marinas”
Faced with the urgent problem caused by marine pollution, in CONAMA 2016 the “Decalogue of citizens against marine litter” was launched. It is a document agreed by environmental organizations, public administrations, third sector entities, fishermen and companies, including the ECOALF Foundation. The Decalogue presents tips and good practices focused on prevention, with the aim of helping to keep the beaches, coasts, and oceans clean.
