Ocean Initiatives: an unprecedented outcome
Summer: a good excuse to rethink simple and basic gestures.
Isn’t summer the best season to enjoy the fresh breeze from the ocean whether it’s with your family, with friends or simply alone, with the horizon as your only witness? It’s a time of year when it feels good to remind oneself how important it is to preserve this location. We can do this thanks to simple but meaningful gestures that everyone of us can manage, at the beach or anywhere else for that matter.
When you feel thirsty
When you take care of yourself
When you’re having funIt is obviously forbidden to leave your rubbish on the beach (or anywhere else for that matter) to keep it clean. To do so, remember some simple gestures such as bringing your own portable ashtray or your tote bag to pick up your waste. You can also use the Initiatives Oceanes web page to warn of any pollution or if ever you want to organize a waste collection.
However, it is important not to pick up any natural debris like shells, algae or pieces of washed-up wood. Why is that ? Well, it is to preserve the fragile ecosystem and the fauna and flora that represent a good part of that environment. For further information, please check out the form explaining ‘The washed-up elements from the sea.’
