Plastic Free Med

MEDSEA Foundation has implemented the campaign #PlasticFreeMed, to clean the seabed and beaches from human waste as well as raising public awareness about this topic in different Mediterranean destinations.

Description: The Mediterranean Sea, with its cost 6 million km2, is home to about 7% of the world's population, host many tourists during the summer months and 30% of global maritime traffic passes the Mediterranean Sea, (UNEP/MAP, 2011; Eurostat, 2017). And every day a lot of wastes such as plastic, glass, wood and rubber end up on the beaches and on the seabed of our sea.

Facing this environmental emergency and inspired by Parley for the Oceans, the MEDSEA Foundation has implemented the campaign #PlasticFreeMed, to clean the seabed and beaches from human waste as well as raising public awareness about this topic in different Mediterranean destinations.

Joining the Parley AIR Strategy to end marine plastic pollution, MEDSEA want to raise awareness about the growing plastic pollution crisis and how we can all play our part in reducing society’s plastic footprint. Single-use plastic items such as plastic cutlery, coffee cups and plastic water bottles are just the start and we invite you to see just how far we can go together in our shared vision of Plastic Free Med!
