While I do not like some of the things Greenpeace has done, I think their voice is important when it comes to spreading awareness on the situation of our planet. So I am pretty happy about this project they just started in my country, it’s called PLASTIC RADAR and if you live in Italy or will be visiting it this summer you can take part to it.

I’ve been looking for equivalent projects around the world, but I haven’t found them yet, if you know any from your country, make sure to add them to this post, with a link and a short description!

This one is pretty simple, they ask you to send them pictures of plastic debris found on the beach or at sea, ideally the brand of the items should be visible. That way they can rank the most common categories of plastic debris, as well as elaborate a list of the companies which might not be taking action to reduce the use of plastics in their products. The project itself won’t clean the sea, but it definitely looks like a good way to spread awareness on this very important topic and awareness is power!

“Trio of friendly humpbacks mugged us for 45 minutes, looking up at us from less than 10 feet away, circling around and under the boat, and blowing whale snot all over us. Worth it.” – Robin Agarwal
