You are sure to visit the sea this summer. We would like to take this opportunity to give you some tips on how to be eco-sustainable and take care of that place where almost all of us like to go to disconnect: the beach.
USE ECO-FRIENDLY SUNSCREENS
Sunscreens that are not eco-friendly contain chemicals that end up in the sea and end up threatening reefs and the ecosystems that live in them. Use sunscreens that do not contain these substances.
GO TO THE BEACH WITH YOUR RECYCLABLE PACKAGING
Take your recyclable bottle and food in tupperware with you if you intend to spend the whole day at the beach. Avoid single-use aluminium or plastic containers. By generating waste, we are contributing to the disappearance of these natural spaces.
DON’T FORGET YOUR ORGANIC WASTE
Fruit peels or dried fruit and nuts, even if they are organic, must be removed, as a beach is not a rubbish dump.
DO NOT USE GEL OR SHAMPOO IN PUBLIC SHOWERS
If it’s organic, no problem, but if it’s conventional, lather up at home. Waste water from public showers goes directly into the sea.
PICK UP YOUR RUBBISH
It’s a no-brainer, but it’s important to focus on this issue. As we have said, beaches are not rubbish dumps, so make a habit of taking a bag with you to collect the waste you generate and if you see any that is already there, it is a good idea to pick it up so that it doesn’t continue to cause damage.
