This ambitious adventure to walk, 300 kilometers of coastline of the country, to pick up some of the waste that is here and there. Its goal: to raise awareness on the problem of pollution of the Mediterranean coast.
A beautiful getaway a genius idea to clean by walking and camping.
He says, "The 300-kilometer action is not really about cleaning because I know I'm just a drop in the ocean, but I want to educate people about this problem so that they begin to realize and ask themselves: Wait, it is not normal, all these bottles, all these plastic bags? 300 kilometers between sand and salt water carrying a message of peace, tolerance with all that surrounds us, living, dead, and floating souls who refuse to abandon the paradise earth.”
And of course no one has sponsored it, this guy deserves to be elected champion of the year, let’s hope other people do the same or join him, a pride for our planet.
