On Sunday 22nd November & Sunday 6th December, we joined BETTER TOGETHER, a local group here in Calvia fronted by Adell Karalar who is doing some incredible work to help many charities across the Balearics who are up against it in these tough times. The Beach Clean is just one of many amazing things she has done to lend a helping hand to the local community.
The first Beach Clean was to be held on Palmanova Beach, with restrictions on what we can do this event wasn’t only an incredible way to look after one of many amazing beaches here in Mallorca, while also protecting the habitats of the sea, many used it as a nice family day out with dogs in tow. With the support of two restaurants, The Olive Tree & Origin who were both offering Free Water plus Coffee & Beers for €2 the hard work of the beach clean was rewarded for many with a canya in the sun.
The second Beach Clean was to be held on Santa Ponca Beach and this time BETTER TOGETHER had the support of NATURAL DOG TREATS BALEARICS who were kindly donating a dog treat for every bag of rubbish collected. With the sun not so shiny for this Beach Clean the turnout was still great for this event.
It’s incredible as well as surprising what you find on these Beach Cleans. As many would assume your straws, cigarette buts, fishing line, & plastic bags that get washed up we also came across some unexpected finds such as a men's shoe, tennis racket, diary, & a t-shirt to name a few.
It can be overwhelming to think how much plastic enters our seas every day but there are some amazing groups of people that if they continue to help a little it can make a huge difference.
Here at Sinnombre we aim to do our bit to help the environment and aim to use more Organic cottons & Recycled Materials throught the brand.
