Can we help our planet during the vacation on beach?
Yes, you don’t even have to work that hard, it requires just a few things and with a little desire we can do a good action for our planet.First thing would be to be aware that garbage should not be left on the beach, anything left on the beach after a day that we enjoyed the sun and the sea can only harm our planet.
“As stated by Sergio Costa, Italian Minister of the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea, 570,000 tons of plastic end up in the Mediterranean Sea every year and 134 animal species are victims of the ingestion of this waste.
The situation is also bad for coastlines and seabeds, as revealed by data collected in the three-year period 2015-2017 by Snpa, together with regional agencies for environmental protection (Arpa) and Ispra. Regarding the former, on the 64 beaches monitored, an average of more than 700 litter was found for every 100 meters of shoreline. While on the seabed an average of 66 to 99 objects per square kilometer were detected, resulting from the monitoring of 289 stations. In both cases, plastic is confirmed to be preponderant among marine litter.”
Bring a garbage bag, a pair of gloves and if you need other equipment, take a walk along the beach and see how much trash you can pick up. You will see that many people around you will try to help you or follow your example, they will definitely not leave trash on the beach.With this small step you have helped our planet!
