The scope of micro plastic pollution becomes increasingly clear through recent studies. But what is micro plastic, where does it come from and is it dangerous for humans?

Here you can find a short introduction about plastic in our oceans - where does the plastic come from and what happens with it after reaching the ocean?

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. 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.
