Earth day plastic fishing event April 22, 10:00
“End Plastic Pollution” is this year’s Earth day goal. BarcelonaSail organizes 4 times a year plastic fishing events. These events are free. We go sailing and, on the way, we “fish”, pick up as much plastic as possible. Bring some cloves and be prepared to get a bit wet. Make photos, share them on your social media to create awareness for the plastic pollution in front of the Barcelona coast and make this Earth day plastic fishing event a great success! Use tags, #EarthDay2018, #EndPlasticPollution, and tag us @Barcelonasail.
BarcelonaSail organizes 4 times a year plastic fishing events are free, and we can take up to 9 people in our boat. Signup via our facebook page here.
We leave port Olympic at 10:00 and try to be back between 12:00 and 12:30.
Plastic pollution in the Mediterranean
Plastics are poisoning and injuring marine life in the Mediterranean because many sea animals think plastic is a nice meal and eat it. The plastic stays within the stomach of the fish and some pieces get absorbed in the fish body. Therefore, when we humans eat fish, we eat plastic as well. This can disrupt human growth especially during early puberty.
Every year we see more plastics during our boat tours and the exponential growth of plastics is threatening the Barcelona coast line. To create awareness and to educate we organize the sailing trips for plastic fishing. Did you know that estimates state that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans?
Be the change
The fight against climate change has never been more critical, and we need every single person who cares about the future of our planet to help us fight. Our goals include ending single-use plastics, promoting alternatives to fossil fuel-based materials, promoting 100 percent recycling of plastics, corporate and government accountability and changing human behavior concerning plastics.
BarcelonaSail uses stainless steel cups and carton food boxes on her boat tours and trips to reduce plastic. Our corporate responsibility statement describes Barcelonasail’s mission and environmenat goals. You can help us to become 100% plastic free within one year. Ideas are welcome.
