Letter to the President Solinas: like Apulia let's say stop to the plastic

"Let's say stop to the plastic on the beach." In an open letter, the MEDSEA Foundation asks President of Sardinia Region, Christian Solinas, to ban plastics from the beach areas. The waste that pollutes the sea and the beaches is mainly plastic and disposable: bags, bottles, bottles, balloons. Microplastics, particles of less than 5 mm produced by the fragmentation of objects, are considered one of the six global emergencies of the environment.

Protect the Sardinian coasts and seas from the aggressions of plastic. It is not a mantra of environmentalists: the Environment Committee of the European Parliament has also expressed itself with a directive that indicates 2021 as the date from which the sale and dissemination of non-compostable materials will be prohibited in areas near the sea.

OUR MISSION


Conserving and sustainably using Mediterranean coastal and marine resources.


 

The Mediterranean Sea is home to some of the world's most remarkable environmental resources, unique cultural heritage and exceptional biodiversity. But it is also fragile and very sensitive to human impacts and climate change. Its development is concentrated on its coastal areas, subject to multiple pressures. The fragility of the Mediterranean call for a mobilization of all the actors. The anticipated magnitude of climate change and the political, social and economic difficulties make a new vision for conservation and sustainability of our Sea necessary.

This is why MEDSEA has built a network of passion-driven people who are committed to build on new models, partnerships and strategies on the paths of transition and concrete actions to be implemented for a desirable future of the Mediterranean Basin.

Our focus is on the following 5 key areas
