Fine sand, beach walks, secluded coves and crystal clear water – that is the romantic idea of a perfect holiday by the sea. On many beaches in the world, however, garbage mountains from plastic spoil the holiday pleasure. More and more water sports people are documenting on the internet surfing on a wave of plastic.

Greenpicks’ plastic waste collection campaign in Port Grimaud is already showing the abundance of many plastic products. We entrust to all peoples heart spending their holidays on the beach to the careful use of plastic and a responsible waste disposal.

Plastic Waste on the Beach

Sunbath on the Beach in between of Plastic Waste

Gradually the summer holidays in Europe start. Many tourists spend the best time of the year at the seaside. But who would like to sunbath in the sand between all the plastic waste?

Close to the dustbin

Who wants to have clean beaches and enjoy an unburdened holiday season, will make the short distance way to provided dustbins or take his garbage at home. And if there is no refuse bin available, then do good for yourself, for others and for the environment and take your rubbish and dispose of in an appropriate place. Plastic – less means more ocean and nature!

A good rest for body, mind, soul and nature wishes Greenpicks.
