Plastic Free Seas and Specsavers Opticas Fuengirola Beach Clean Up
Specsavers Opticas Fuengirola have committed to sponsor environmental charity Plastic Free Seas for 2019. They are starting their collaboration with a joint beach clean-up in Fuengirola on Saturday 15th of December. This Beach Clean Up is organized by Plastic Free Seas Worldwide Foundation, in collaboration with the Beach Department of the Fuengirola Town Hall and Specsavers Opticas Fuengirola and they are aiming to collect 400kg of plastic in just a few hours.
Everyone is invited to participate in Plastic Free Seas’ final beach clean-up of the year and make a difference to the amount of plastic in our oceans and on our beaches. Volunteers will meet at Restaurant Alarcon in Fuengirola on the 15th of December at 2.30pm. Bags are supplied to collect the rubbish, but if possible, volunteers are asked to bring some gloves with them, to reduce the plastic use of the event.
Organizers Plastic Free Seas are encouraging as many people in Fuengirola as possible to participate in this event, which can really make a difference to our environment. Craig Webb and Natasha Wegloop, Co-Founders of Plastic Free Seas Worldwide commented; “Let’s make this final beach clean-up of the year our best yet! Bring the kids, bring the dog and help us to reach our target of collecting 400kg of plastic from Fuengirola’s beaches.”
This sponsorship is the latest environmental initiative from global optical chain Specsavers Opticas.
In September, they stopped using plastic bags and started using more environmentally friendly paper bags across all eight Spanish stores, a change which will stop approximately 7,000 plastic bags being produced and distributed. Specsavers Opticas also has an “earth-conscious” range of glasses called Eco. Each frame is constructed from recycled or biodegradable acetate in order to have less impact on the environment.
