European Maritime Day

Tomorrow is European Maritime Day in Gijon, Spain. One topic will be macro waste - marine debris. Surfrider Foundation Europe will hand over a petition "NOT ON OUR BEACHES" , 50,000 signatures strong, demanding that waste is finally considered a pollution like other forms of pollution (and not just a visual nuisance). In march 2010 Surfrider Europe organised the 15th "Initiatives Oceanes" - a europe wide beach-cleanup - with 40,000 participants on 800 beaches.
