Galapagos Islands Residents Join World Movement for Clean Beaches

As a part of a very smart campaign, hundreds of volunteers in the Galapagos Islands are working together on an initiative to clean the beaches of the Galapagos.

Led by Ecuador’s Minister of the Environment, Marcela Aguiñaga, this movement has the goal of educating people about the actual pollution of beaches and oceans of Ecuador, while creating a consistent protection system for the coasts.

The results were extremely positive, as more than 5,000 pounds of garbage were collected by the Galapagos Islands residents with the help of this campaign, which celebrates the Day of Clean Beaches that was created back in 1991. Now more than 121 countries have joined the initiative.

Over 400 people participated in the collection, and now the main goal is to classify the garbage in order to start a recycling campaign as well. Initiatives like this proves that Galapagos Islands residents are aware that they live in a true paradise and that they are committed to preserving  it in a tangible way.
