MED Blue Islands: collecting and categorising micro-plastics (16-18 June 2017)

As you know, Amics de la Terra Mallorca is working on the MED Blue Islands project, for which we’re collecting, categorising and tracking plastics and micro-plastics on three beaches in Mallorca. Find out more about the MED Blue Islands project (Spanish).

The MED Blue Islands project is co-ordinated in Mallorca by the Consell de Mallorca (Departament de Medi Ambient de la Direcció Insular de Residus). Amics de la Terra Mallorca is co-ordinating collecting and categorising the waste.

The next collection day for the month of June is:

  • Friday 16 June 2017 – Es Torà beach, Calvià
  • Saturday 17 June 2017 – Es Carbò beach, Santanyí
  • Sunday 18 June 2017 – Sa Canova beach, Artà

The meeting points are either 8am in Palma for car sharing, or on the beaches themselves. Please confirm via Thank you!
