Plastic 0 Menorca
Plastic 0 Menorca is a You Social project. The mission is to raise awareness and call to action about the reduction and re-use of plastic. We provide education about the problem by giving concrete solutions. At the same time the project aims to promote sustainable tourism in Menorca as an example of a successful eco-project in the Mediterranean, involving people and organizations both on the island and its surroundings.
Plastic 0 Menorca carries out expeditions with volunteers to collect plastic from the coasts of Menorca. During the first "Plastic 0 Menorca" expedition which lasted five days, 330.68 kg of plastic were collected and about 10,000 micro-plastics removed from the coasts of the island, thereby removing a risk factor for marine fauna and the ecosystem of the Mediterranean Sea.
The objective of the expeditions is to educate more people every day about this problem and the solutions that we can put into practice. And to offer and enjoyable and sustainable vacation on the island of Menorca and sharing the experience with other volunteers.
