“So that the trash does not reach the sea”
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” - “Citizen Decalogue against marine litter”
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.
