The TrashChallenge Menorca campaign invites everyone to collect plastics on the beaches of Menorca. Together we can save the beauty of the island!
Between the 14th and 19th of April, there was the trash challenge Menorca, a voluntary action that became viral worldwide; it consisted of taking a picture before and after cleaning a beach. The goal is to be concerned about the importance of not dirty the excellent costs we have.
That's a big problem for the ecosystem!
Not all new technologies are destructive; thanks to that, a group of young people organized a hangout to clean beaches of plastics and general rubbish. More than 300 people participated in the event.
Suppose you want to know more about this campaign, and specifically in Menorca. You will find an Instagram Account, TrashChallenge Menorca. That's a public profile where they used to share all their movements in Menorca.
From our website Menorca-Playas, we want to focus on the importance of this topic. No one wants to go to a beach full of plastics, so we would be glad if you returned all you bring to the beach. An empty bottle weighs less than a full one.
Cala Macarella is one of the best-known coves in Menorca. The turquoise colour of the sea and the boats' shadows make this beach look like a postcard of the Balearic Islands.
Sharks are present in Menorca and throughout the Mediterranean Sea. However, the overfishing of the last decades has diminished sharks sightings. Nevertheless, every year there is usually an appearance of a blue shark, normally dying on the shore.
