SeaCleaners Festival: new records for the World Oceans Day

The SeaCleaners Festival, created to echo the World Oceans Day (June 8), has come to an end.
It's time to look at the results, and they are pretty impressive: 1,250 kg of collected waste that will not end up in the sea!

Protecting the Ocean is a matter that requires so much more than a single day,  so The SeaCleaners created the SeaCleaners Festival – a fortnight to amplify the World Oceans Day and multiply the actions, with the aim of raising the awareness of as many people as possible about the worrying state of our blue planet.

A big and warm Thank You to all the volunteers, partners and sponsors for your commitment.
World Oceans Day is about taking action and making our voices heard in the defense for our most beautiful, vast, precious but fragile common heritage: the Ocean.
