Is an environmental activity that aims to raise awareness of the issue of microplastics, both in nature and in our daily lives. The project is divided in two parts: a virtual workshop focused on the issue of microplastics and a beach clean up to monitor the amount of microplastics, a result that will be then used by the scientific community in the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to study the presence of these microplastics on the Canary Islands coastline. Each volunteer will receive a Tamaragua Kit, a tool used to collect microplastics and that is produced with 100% recycled plastic. The goal of this project is to leave the shore better than how we found it.
The main activity of the organization is to run clean ups in the Canary Islands, mostly in Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Over the last 3 years, the association has organised more than 60 clean ups with hundreds of volunteers.
Workshops with schools
The organisation also run plenty of workshops in schools. Over the last 3 years, they have organised more than 750 workshops in schools and educated more than 3.000 kids and teenagers.
