Summer has now come to an end and we are all slowly returning to routine in which fall reintroduces us in.
We give a nostalgic look to our holiday photos reminding the relaxing moments spent by the sea, in the most beautiful beaches that the planet offers us. What a thrill to arrive in wonderful bays and observe the transparent water that allows us to admire the seabed even at a distance, plunge into the clean and fresh sea, swim with the fish and lie in the sun on a white sand beach or high and wild rocks. This natural sight to which we entrust our memories and our best days is a huge value gift that not many people seem to respect.
We know well, thanks to awareness campaigners and to various projects that are fortunately increasing, that seas and oceans are strongly threatened by the pollution caused by the plastic that in addition to visibly damage the beaches and the waters cause immense damage to marine life. The WWF has therefore created “Spaces Plastic Free”, a project to clean the beaches that will touch for its last date the Sardinian coast in particular Cala Saccaia (Olbia) on Saturday 15 September. The event that cleaned the italian beaches from plastic, which accounts for 95% of the waste was included among the official ones of the World Clean Up Day. For the Sardinian stage WWF will have as supporter REEF, the leading brand in the surf industry and always committed to environmental protection. Giorgia Palmas, wonderful testimonial of REEF and of Sardinian origins will be the godmother of the event.

We can also contribute to the event and participate as volunteers in the cleaning day in Sardinia by registering on the wwf.it/plasticfree website: the WWF will provide the kit consisting of a cap, bib and flyer to each volunteer.
