MAZATLAN. – Human beings every day generates more pollution in the world and one of the points that attack most are beaches; According to data from the United Nations (UN), through its environment program, every minute trash thrown can fill the equivalent of a garbage truck, Mazatlan environmentalists indicated.
The journalist Raquel Zapién shared recent data from the UN which shows that more than half of the waste in the seas is plastic, which does not disappear, does not degrade, or fragments at the bottom of the sea.
“A campaign that it has at a national and international level, which can be searched on the internet and called Clean Our Oceans, the UN indicates that so much garbage reaches the sea, mainly plastic, as if every minute we emptied a garbage collection truck”.
On the other hand, the co-founder of Last Chance 4 Earth, Gabriel Madero, commented that the message is clear because cleaning beaches is not the solution, it is a never-ending story, we must be more aware of what they consume.
“If they go to the beaches they must clean their waste, not throw it away, thinking that they will come for them or thinking that they will disappear, the solution is not to clean the beaches, we are the solution to change habits,” said the activist.
Last Saturday a beach cleaning was carried out throughout the Olas Altas Beach, from the Shield to the rocky area adjacent to the Olivera Carpa, where bags, plastic, wrappers, glass containers, and cigarette butts were collected.
