Plastic Free Ibiza
The Plastic Free Ibiza movement was created at the end of June 2018 with a view to ensuring that the natural, cultural and historic beauty of Ibiza and Formentera would remain free of plastic contamination. It works with other organisations to join forces and experience to investigate and offer solutions to replace, reduce, reuse and recycle plastic products in homes, companies and public institutions.
The support received from Fundación Marilles, together with that of the Fundación para la Conservación de Ibiza y Formentera, enabled the organisation to hire two coordinators for a year and to implement the first-ever joint actions in Ibiza and Formentera: three screenings of the Out of Plasticfilm, the organisation of World Clean Up Day, the cleaning of different beaches and numerous coordination meetings to design future actions and to work for a common strategy.
"Citizens and local governments, as the custodians of the islands, can achieve the elimination of single-use plastics and a reduction in all non-essential plastic products. The aid from Marilles has enabled us to lay the foundations and carry out the first activities of the Plastic Free Ibiza and Formentera movement."Myrto Pispini Coordinator, Plastic Free Ibiza and Formentera
