Carragueiros beach was cleared of waste yesterday, after the thorough cleaning activity of a group of 48 volunteers, made up of students and teachers from «Santa María do Castro school». The environmental brigade removed no less than 253kg of waste after a morning of intensive activity where the weather also helped.
The campaign is part of the coastal cleaning programme promoted by the Boiro cannery and the Ecomar Foundation. The development of this type of initiatives is one of the main ideas of We Sea, Jealsa’s social responsibility and sustainability programme.
Ángeles Claro, Jealsa’s director of sustainability and Marga Hermo, Jealsa’s director of institutional relations also took part in this. Between all of them they removed many cigarette butts, cans and, especially, many plastic items that should have not been there. All waste items were conveniently packed in bags for disposal.
Ángeles Claro, sustainability director, confirmed: «raising awareness of the importance of protecting the oceans is a priority for us, especially since we are a company totally linked to the sea».
