STOROPACK ESPAÑA, S.L. CLEANS THE BEACH OF CASTELLDEFELS WITH BIG BLUE OCEAN CLEANUP

Storopack and Big Blue Ocean have joined once again to clean the beaches around us. This time the packaging division of Storopack Spain and the Spanish delegation of Big Blue Ocean have met to clean the beach of Castelldefels, Barcelona.

Last Friday, November 15, Storopack made a cleaning of plastics, cigarette ends and other remains (including a plastic chair buried in the sand) of one of the most crowded Catalan beaches throughout the year. The team, of more than 12 people, combed the Catalan beach in search of any litter they could find and ended up collecting all kinds of waste. The items with the most presence were cigarette ends, lollipop plastic sticks, beverage containers and microplastics.

The amount of microplastics found is remarkable, as illustrated in the photographs. Microplastics are small plastics that come from larger packages or plastic products. Due to salt, the passage of time, water and other elements, large plastics break down and break into small pieces, which make it easier to scatter through the sea and sand.

We are committed to the philosophy Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Renew. Most of our products are reusable and recyclable without losing properties thanks to their excellent quality. Storopack also has a water-soluble biocompostable option.
