MORE than 60 volunteers answered a call to help clean Moraira’s beaches.
They removed 100 kilos of rubbish and litter of all kinds in from the shore and sea in an initiative organised by the Environment and Tourism departments, together with the municipally-owned Teumo rubbish collecting service.
Environment councillor Carlos Martinez said beforehand that both the departments involved, as well as Teumo, hoped that the event would achieve more than a clean-up.
“As well as clearing rubbish from the shoreline and the sea itself, we want to make people aware of, and more understanding towards, climate change,” he said.
The participants met at the Castillo on the Moraira, later splitting up to scour the principal beaches.
The majority did their stint of rubbish collection on land, but others removed plastics and other refuse from a boat provided by the SVS emergency rescue service while others used paddle boards.
