Here are who are some of the Medplastic Ambassadors of the Week who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty!
These are the splendid boys of the Circolo Canottieri Savoia Sailing School in Naples. On each of their outings, during training sessions, they strive to collect everything that floats thus making, board after board, our Sea cleaner and cleaner!!!
Thus Carlo Colonnese, “In my small way, a plastic bag in Baia degli Infreschi (Salerno).” If we all, “in our own small way,” picked up the filth in the sea, we would have a cleaner Mediterranean. Great Carlo!
Fanja Raffellini of Vela Tradizionale denounces the problem of Styrofoam boxes left behind by fishing boats, which infest our sea. And he advises inspiration from what they do in Catalonia: “Two crates in two days…we are becoming professionals! In La Spezia I saw some fishing boats in the harbor throwing plates and lunch glasses overboard…washing the deck and with water sliding the broken crates away. We were in Palamos a few years ago, the crates are plastic and they have stamped boat name and license code.”
It’s off to hunt! Send us photos of your plastic catches, litter, and shots of your sightings of fish, cetaceans, jellyfish, seabirds! To the Instagram inbox @giornaledellavela, or post them on your profile with the hashtag #medplastic2020, or on the Medplastic Team facebook group! We will award prizes for the most beautiful ones! There is time until October 30, 2020!
The No Plastic 2020 contest is being held in collaboration with Navico, a brand that brings together the boat electronics brands B&G, Lowrance, Simrad, and the dedicated mapping brand C-Map. And that it will raffle off prize vouchers spendable on its entire product range.
