Surfing with first light or climbing a volcano to watch the sunrise, is an amazing way to start the day.
Cleaning a beach after it, trying to return something in exchange , can be even more satisfying and is definitely our doggies favorite.
Fuerteventura is surrounded by deep waters with strong currents. Nevertheless our beaches and reefs catch a lot of ocean plastic.
Tons of fishing gear like nets , lines or buoys, bottles, caps, all kinds of packaging, toys, lighters, toothbrushes, q-tips….more single-use plastic items than you can imagine get washed ashore.
If you are a beach person you run into it.
Well, everybody prefers a clean beach and pristine waters but this is not an esthetic problem.
Broken into tiny pieces by the elements, plastic gets mistaken for food or is accidentally eaten.
It harms and kills unaware animals, enters the food chain, and ends up on our table.
