P come Pesce, non come Plastica

Beach cleaning is a very popular activity with plenty of activists both in Sicily and in Malta. Join us this summer to keep our beaches pristine for our seas and our community. Let’s meet at the beach. We will provide you with the best tools and all the information you will need for this fun group activity. The plastic items you collect will be recycled and the plastic used at art contests involving all the local schools. We will also install bins in all the main harbours in which local fishermen can deposit plastic items trapped in their nets. These activities will benefit both the environment and the community raising awareness among all the people involved and the end users.
