More than 100 waste collection containers have been put in place in 20 ports of Cataluña, Spain. Local fishermen are depositing plastic waste, discarded fishnets and ropes that are then collected to be recyceld.
10 tons of nets are collected on average per month. Our objective is to expand our scope of action to entire Spain, then Africa and South America.
Each pair of sunglasses purchased helps us to increase the efforts to prevent discarted nets to end up in the sea. One sunglass sold = 10 kgr of nets collected.
The eyes of these communities also suffer the consequences of spending most of the day exposed to the sun. We intend to donate a pair of sunglasses to each fisherman in selected communities on a yearly basis.
