Our aim is to raise awareness throughout the population regarding the pollution of our oceans, living more sustainable and even use your voice as consumer against unnecessary packaging.
Therefore beach clean-ups in the context of the Surfriders Ocean Initiatives are useful because you get attention while collecting waste. Often people ask and try to get in conversation about our motives. This is a welcomed opportunity to explain and create an awareness. It is our opinion that it is quite important to show the people the consequences of our throwaway society and that there is more to do than ban plastic bags from supermarkets.
We need to increase the understanding throughout all population strata that single use plastics or plastic in general is not the answer for our future and thatwe need to use it wisely not just for everything in life !
