The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation unite for the preservation of the marine environment
As part of its mission to raise awareness of marine conservation issues, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation approached the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation to jointly carry out two actions to raise awareness of plastic pollution, simultaneously in Monaco and Calvi, on the morning of Saturday, September 12 2020.
About 40 volunteers collected waste alongside the students of the 7th school of Fontvieille, the class in charge this year of the Marine Educational Area (AME) in Monaco. To those picked up by the volunteers, were added the waste collected by the cantoners and the skis jets of the SMA early in the morning as part of their daily tour. Nearly 100 kilos of waste were collected at the AME site (81.5 kg at sea, 12.5 kgs ashore) before being sorted, plus 30 kg collected outside the area.
The top 3 waste types found ashore were cigarette butts, with 1380 butts picked up, food packaging and various pieces of plastic. And in the sea: glass, scrap metal and fishing equipment. Some 70 glass bottles, 100 pieces of glass and 120 pieces of scrap metal were raised to the surface as well as fishing wires made of nylon, but also… a scooter!
A more technical workshop, that the Prince Albert II of Monaco could discover before the departure of Water Bike Challenge, was when Mare Vivu introduced experimental local recycling of plastics collected on beaches using a «Recyclette».
