Yesterday, a day of waste collection organized by 'Blue Flags' within the BLUE FLAG MED WEEK took place on the beaches of Puerto, Bahía and La Reya. They are held throughout the Mediterranean and are aimed at raising awareness of the importance of conservation of beaches as a natural resource and as the first barrier in the conservation of our seas.
It has involved a hundred children and youth coordinated by the Red Cross who have performed on the beaches of Puerto, Bahia and La Reya.
The event was attended by the councilors Raquel Raja and Silvia García and the president of Cruz Roja Mazarrón, Carmen Navarro;
who have shared with the volunteers a talk in which the importance of keeping our beaches in good condition has been highlighted, since it is the first point of production of garbage that ends directly on the seabed.
In this activity they collaborate, in addition to the City Council, Red Cross Mazarrón, the Marina of Mazarrón, the Club de Regatas de Mazarrón, the Grímpola sailing school and Actúa Servicios.
The mayor of Mazarrón, Gaspar Miras, wanted to emphasize the importance of this activity because "it is fundamental to raise awareness among citizens of the importance of our seabed and that their health depends to a great extent on our impact on beaches, which also they have to be taken care of and protected by everyone. "
In this sense, Miras recalled that "throughout the year various cleanings are organized through the municipal project 'circular tides', an initiative in which we collaborate with different associations, companies and groups for the conservation of our coast."
Precisely, this Sunday, July 14, there is a new voluntary event to clean the beach and the Rambla del Rihuete organized by the City of Mazarrón, Camping Las Torres and Mazarrón Yes and in collaboration with the Diving Center of the Southeast Bachisub , the Café Buenavista and the pizzeria Mamma Mia.
The meeting point for the participants, who can be added freely to the activity, will be the Café Buenavista in El Alamillo from 8:30 in the morning.
