Was born with the aim of revaluing the Valencian coast, helping to understand and reverse the problem of marine litter and microplastics, classifying what type of waste reaches the coast and its possible origin to offer a waste management solution. They aim to sensitize, raise awareness and motivate citizens by promoting a more sustainable use of plastics and organizing physical removals of waste. They use GIS tools to make visible the waste that ends up on the beaches, in addition to the sediment analysis they carry out to detect the amount of microplastics that are deposited on the beaches.
