Most plastic pollution at sea starts out on land as litter on beaches, streets and sidewalks. This pollution can often be prevented from entering our ocean. Here are some simple individual actions which you can take to solve this global issue.


The Clean Beach Initiative was founded by the yoga brand „Southern Shores“. “Southern Shores” sells sustainable and 100% plastic free yoga products. However we realized that only preventing new waste from entering the environment by selling sustainable yoga products is not enough. This is why the Clean Beach Initiative was founded. We started by conducting beach clean-ups in Barcelona/Spain, and are currently planning clean-ups in Hamburg/Germany and in Reykjavik/Iceland. Our clean-ups in Barcelona have already gained phenomenal traction and each Saturday many dedicated volunteers help us to cleanup the Barceloneta beach. Everyone is highly welcome to join our beach cleanups in Barcelona. We are also very happy about people that want to help us organizing our upcoming clean-ups in Hamburg/Germany and Reykjavik/Iceland.
