ACTION. The Rainbow Warrior of Greenpeace invaded by giant plastic packaging in the Med
Greenpeace’s flagship, the Rainbow Warrior, has been surrounded by giant single-use plastic items in Mediterranean waters. To make visible the invisible the organization has delivered this action in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, in Balearic waters, in Spain. Hereby the environmental organization seeks to denounce the problem of plastic pollution in the oceans, especifically in the Mediterranean Sea.
Activists of the organization have placed ten giant objects (1), representing some of the most frequently found items in beaches: two bottles of 12 meters, two glasses of 6 meters and giant straws and bottle caps. Close to the objects, in a banner of 60 m2, it was possible to read #NoPlastic.
Approximately 40 % of the demand of plastic in Europe is for plastic packaging, most of it single-use. Also plastic packaging is the most common waste littered in the environment round the world.
Today’s action is part of the international campaign “Less plastic, more Mediterranean” in which the flagship of Greenpeace, Rainbow Warrior, is touring the Mediterranean to denounce the huge presence of plastic in the sea and to demand governments in the region to take urgent measures to stop this serious problem.
