CleanWave works to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles in the Balearics
CleanWave works to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles in the Balearics, encouraging drinking fountains to be fitted and the creation of a network of free refill points, raising awareness among the populace and working with companies and event organisers to introduce treatment systems and solutions that avoid the need for mass purchases of plastic bottles.
Towards the end of April 2018, CleanWave presented Out of Plastic, a documentary about plastic pollution in the Balearic Islands and the growing shift in awareness towards conservation of the Earth and its oceans. Out of Plastic shows the points of view of the main players in the world of recycling, conservation and the plastic bottle industry, ending by demonstrating some of the solutions and tangible action that can be taken.
Marilles has awarded a grant for CleanWave to disseminate the film in the Balearics, organising screenings in public locations and schools on all the main islands and thereby giving the documentary a wider audience.
