Beach clean up - 135kg of trash!!


Arriving at the office today, we found that the tides brought in a LOT of seaweed and - unfortunately - a crazy amount of trash. So we decided to clean the beach a little, which resulted in a whole morning of picking trash. From just 100m of coast line, we collected over 135kg of debris, a worrying amount!

Besides collecting a complete wardrobe (shirts, underwear, caps, a belt...) we found many pieces of fabric, shoes, fishing line, ropes, plastic bottles, etc. Thanks everyone for the help for such an impulsive beach clean up! :)

This afternoon, we will try our luck underwater to clean the home reef from trash.
