A coastal cleaning operation will take place in Praia Formosa on the 17th of September, by the Sailors for the Sea Portugal Association between 10:00 – 13:00.
Sailors for the Sea Portugal is a non-profit association, based in Cascais, whose main mission is to raise awareness of the sustainability of the seas and oceans.
The 17th of September marks International Coastal Cleaning Day, a date celebrated annually on the third Saturday of September. The association, in partnership with Novo Verde – Sociedade Gestora de Resíduos de Embalagens, has created a environmental awareness action plan called ‘Reciclar é a Nossa Praia’.
The activity is based on the implementation of coastal cleaning actions in all ten coastal districts of mainland Portugal, and the Azores and Madeira archipelagos.
