Catalans Beach (07/10/2019)
In October, we went to Catalans Beach in Marseille. It’s a natural famous beach just next to the city.
During 10min we cleaned the sand and we took off the plastic.
Look how many we found just during 10min:
it’s more than 530 pieces of plastic in the majority.
Litters details of the beach cleaning
- 20 straw from caprisone

- More than 200 PIECES of PLASTIC mixed
And finally around 143 very SMALL PIECES of circular plastic. It was difficult to see but it was here!!

Why it’s here? Probably because a boat lose his shipment..
Could you image how many plastic I took out of the beach just with my 2 hands during 10 min? It’s absolutely huge.
