This year, we are releasing the Environmental Report from the Ocean Initiatives* on the occasion of the European Waste Reduction Week. We thought this was a pertinent date to pick! Apart from being a waste collection event, the Ocean Initiatives are also, and above all, a far-reaching campaign against marine litter.
Who are we?
