CLEAN RIVERS, SAVE OCEANS
The ECOALF Foundation and BIOTHERM unite to conserve the aquatic ecosystems and stop litter from reaching the sea in a project with a three year duration that will start up in November 2020 with the Jarama River. The objective is to recuperate fluvial environments by stressing the harm that discarded garbage causes rivers and oceans, simultaneously addressing participation, conservation, sensitivity, and scientific understanding.

“To prevent the waste from entering the sea"
In 2018 Lanjarón and the ECOALF Foundation jointly launched this project, which aims to prevent waste accumulated in coastal areas from getting into the sea. For this project, a number of sites on the Andalusian coast were selected for clean-up operations and detailed characterisation in order to improve the knowledge on the problem and offer future solutions.
“Decálogo Ciudadano" against marine waste
In light of the serious problem marine waste represents, CONAMA 2016 witnessed the presentation of the “ Decalogue against Marine Waste", a document agreed upon by environmental organisations, administrations, third sector bodies, fishermen and businesses, including the ECOALF Foundation, containing advice and good practices focused on prevention, with the aim of contributing to the maintenance of clean beaches, coasts and oceans.
