Water quality: the results are in
The Ocean also would need holidays
Here we go: the heat, the sun that shines late in the evening, the salty air, the lie-ins, … For most, July rhymes with the beginning of the holidays. We have dreamed about it, for months we have waited for it, but that is no reason to forget all our believes. What if this year, holidays were to rhyme with less waste? The environment would also like to enjoy a healthy break.
A sweet break, but not for zero waste
It has been proven; you can enjoy your vacations by protecting the environment! Indeed, when you think about it, it would be a pity to transform your favorite go-to summer place into a huge pile of waste. If you love your vacation spot, you need to respect it.
All the good instincts developed during winter are not to be forgotten because summer is showing up. By the ocean, by a lake or by a river (and even in your garden or on your balcony!), do not leave your waste behind, prevent using single-use plastics and try to eat local products as much as possible (that’s even the best way to discover the area).
Surfrider Europe has even developed the perfect app to guide you, step-by-step, through waste reduction and ocean protection. Ocean’s Zero, that’s 25 challenges to fulfill in order to learn the right moves and limit environmental impact.
What should be avoided at all costs? The morning swim that turns into a nightmare when coming out of the water with a plastic bag and 5 cigarette butts between your toes.
