#Amarelmar - For a sea without plastics

#Amarelmar - Por un mar sin plásticos

Separately we are a drop, together we are an ocean

I would like to ask you the problem - what is happening with plastics? Today, most of us, or at least in my circle, are aware of the damage that plastics are doing to our Mother Earth.

Every year, I get into the sea, in my paradise, in my temple of peace and I see how we are killing it. How people throw away their plastics, their snacks, their appetizers, and the boats, the most harmful of all, throw all their, excuse the word, shit, into our temple of life.

I have been spending the summer in Menorca for 29 years, and I see how every year the human being destroys this beauty of a place, and not only here, I know that it happens worldwide. Year after year, I have been suffering as the seas are deteriorating, and how the marine fauna and flora end up disappearing.

How can we help? It's too easy to do our bit, and I find it incredible that we don't. You are on the beach with your friends, family and partner, and why are you going to collect four pieces of plastic when there are a hundred thousand? If each of us did it, the problem would be greatly diminished.

I pose a challenge to you, that I do not want the month of August to last, nor that we all put as # in our social networks #agostosinplasticos. I want the challenge to start today and never end, and for our # to be #AMARELMAR. That every time you go to a beach, even if you only see a tiny piece of plastic, you pick it up.

What is my challenge? – Make the island of Menorca swimming, 216 km is the perimeter that surrounds the island that has loved me since I was born. During the stages I will be collecting the plastics that I find on the way.

My partner, who is also passionate about sports and shares the same purpose as me, is going to be in charge of going in a kayak carrying food, water, sleeping bags and all the plastic that we find along the way. He will be by my side throughout the journey.

A challenge that I do to make people aware of the importance of keeping our seas free of plastics .

I would like the message to reach as many people as possible and that all of us together can help by collecting the plastic that we see on the beaches and in the sea.

I invite you to learn about the challenge and help me spread this message to reach as many people as possible!

Remember, if you want to be part of the challenge, every time you go to the beach and see plastic, pick it up. You can upload the photo to Instagram with the #AMARELMAR.

Ecological awareness is one of the pillars of Twogies. This is why we make the AMARELMAR code available to you so that you can make your purchases and we will donate 50% of the benefits obtained with the use of this code to the "0 Plastic Menorca" association. Contribute your grain of sand in this fight for everyone.

You too can be #AMARELMAR

Do not think that I forgot to introduce myself, but I think it is the least important thing in this whole movement.

My name is Elena, I am a restless and smiling girl who is passionate about adventures and new challenges. I am an active person who needs to practice sports on a daily basis. I like obstacles and the adrenaline rush of overcoming them.

Lover of the sea and the living beings that inhabit it.

I have been visiting the island of Menorca since I was 3 months old, and there is no place in this world that has me more in love. It is an island full of charm. From the color of the water, the vegetation and the virgin corners that it still preserves, to its towns and the wonderful people that inhabit them.
