PADDLE & PICK
Each year, 10 tons of plastic are found at the bottom of the oceans. In 80% of the cases in Europe, these wastes come from the human activity on land and are carried by the rivers. Under the effect of light, these macro-wastes are modified into micro plastics polluting our seas and contaminating the food chain.
To protect our oceans, rivers and above all ourselves, it is fundamental to question our habits in terms of consumption and recycling and to reduce our use of single-use plastics. The best waste is the one that is not produced. Watertrek is working on this awareness and provides you with tools to organize your own waste collection along the beaches and banks. These clean-up experiments allow as many people as possible to become aware of the magnitude of this dramatic phenomenon for our aquatic ecosystems and to obtain a quantification of the phenomenon through counting.
