Single use plastic is causing an alarming amount of pollution in one of Europe's most beloved regions - the Mediterranean basin. A large amount of plastic waste is entering the sea near Barcelona from drains, rivers and sewage, as well as coming in on the tides. This plastic pollution not only ruins such a pretty area, but becomes harmful to sealife, enters the food chain and impacts on our ecosystem.
Volunteers on this project will join a passionate team of divers who are keen to clean up the sea around Barcelona. Each day, you will go diving to collect plastic, fishing nets and other marine debris from the sea. This is such an important effort, and in the last 3 months alone, over 100kg of plastic has been removed from the sea.
Free time in Barcelona
Once the day's work is done, your time is your own to relax at the beach, explore the cultural diversity of the city or try some of the renowned Spanish food. As part of your trip, you will take part in a city tour led by a member of the homeless community, which will show you elements of the city that are not seen by most tourists.
