BOSKALIS BEACH CLEANUP TOUR
Marine litter and plastic pollution are a growing environmental problem worldwide. About 8 million tons of plastic flow into our oceans every year. This plastic is harmful to the oceans and the many animal species that live in them. Stichting de Noordzee, together with Boskalis, organised this tour in which the whole Noordzee beach is being cleaned up.
We participate this tour every year. https://www.beachcleanuptour.nl/over-de-tour/
