We Nature Project collects 200 kilos of garbage at Atalaia beach

200 KILOS OF GARBAGE IN 150 METERS!

This was the result of today’s action carried out by Eco Local Brazil NGO with the help of Sustainable Itajaí Institute (INIS), Ubaitaba Rowing and Marine Preservation Base Team and Atalaia Surf School (ESA)

In a 2 hour effort, our team, made of supporters and volunteers, was able to cover a 150 meter zone of the Itajaí Bay, where approximately 200 kilos of garbage was collected.

The collected residues are plastics, bottles, and polystyrene that float easily and are deposited on the shores, arriving through the ocean and rivers. We also found fishing items, various objects, and cigarette butts left by people who visit bay.

In hard-to-reach areas we were able to collect more than 50 kilos of garbage. This was only possible with the help of Ubaitaba Rowing and Marine Preservation Base Team using the Hawaiian canoe to take out the residues.

This is one more action of We Nature Project, which is carried out by Core Case in partnership with the Eco Local Brasil NGO.
