According to the report from World Economic Forum, the rate of plastic pollution is only expected to increase as more and more plastic is used globally, especially in emerging economies with weaker waste and recycling regimes. It is imperative then to start working together towards the conservation of our oceans and let them breathe. This is why World Oceans Day was supported by the United Nations and it’s becoming more and more important every year.
To honor this great day and as a part of our continuous efforts to preserve our community ecosystem, our Environment Department organizes gatherings to clean our beaches, this time was the turn of Playa El Médano. We want to share with you a little something about this activity.
The concept of a ‘World Oceans Day’ was first proposed in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro as a way to celebrate our world’s shared ocean and our personal connection to the sea, as well as to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in our lives and the important ways people can help protect it.
Let´s all help our oceans!
