•🇬🇧 ⚠️ PLEASE SHARE ⚠️ We never ask you to share my photos or videos but this is unacceptable, we have to rise awareness of what is happening. I wanted to dive to get some footage of the sea live in La Cala de Ali (Alicante) but look what I found. Just wipes, tissues and plastics everywhere. It is one of the most horrible things I’ve ever seen, I couldn’t believe it was in my hometown. We must change, we can’t keep destroying the environment this way. We must realise that killing the oceans is killing ourselves. No one will save the planet for us, and we are running out of time. We are responsible of our acts, just think twice before doing something that will harm the only planet where we can live, like throwing things to the WC or littering at the beach. Let’s change our mind and create a new normality, it’s the only way we can give nature a chance to recover. /•🇪🇸 ⚠️ POR FAVOR COMPARTE ⚠️ Nunca pedimos que compartas nuestras fotos o vídeos pero esto es inaceptable, tenemos que crear conciencia de lo que está sucediendo. Quería bucear para obtener algunas imágenes de la vida marina en La Cala de Ali (Alicante) pero mira lo que encontré. Solo toallitas, pañuelos y plásticos por todas partes. Es una de las cosas más horribles que he visto, no podía creer que fuera en la ciudad donde vivo. Tenemos que cambiar, no podemos seguir destruyendo el medio ambiente de esta manera. Tenemos que darnos cuenta de que matar los océanos es matarnos a nosotros mismos. Nadie salvará el planeta por nosotros y nos quedamos sin tiempo. Somos responsables de nuestros propios actos, solo piénsatelo dos veces antes de hacer algo que dañará al único planeta donde podemos vivir, como tirar cosas por el water o tirar basura en la playa. Cambiemos de opinión y creemos una nueva normalidad, es la única forma en que podemos darle a la naturaleza la oportunidad de recuperarse.

  1. Its well known that many Hotels has pipelines from the toilets directly into the oceans!!!Sometime the shit is swimming near you.
    But most waste in the Ocean came from 3rd/2nd World countries.They threw everything into the creeks.But ofcourse alot of tourists throw their things at the beach.

    With all the money we have spent into Fake Greem Energy(its not green and you have a net with Solar and Wind)we should have done something against the waste.In Germany all the waste is burning now and they made energy out of it.
