The ECOALF Foundation participates in various activities to raise awareness on the problem of waste and damage to the marine ecosystem, as well as on the role of recycling in the search for solutions. Thus, lectures are given and discussions, workshops and exhibitions are organized worldwide for all kinds of audiences, including children.
