Social Distancing Beach CleanUp

Ver. No. 1 (June 14th, 2020)

Who we are

Plastic Hunt is a great awareness-raising event about the ocean plastic problem which has also the aim to help NGOs working in the ocean protection and conservation. This project was born from the idea of a group of young Italians who has already organized several beach clean-ups. Due to the Coronavirus situation, that imposes social distancing and prohibits large gatherings of people, it will probably not be possible to organize big beach clean ups as in the past, with even 100 people on the same beach. Despite this, cleaning beaches is not forbidden, and can be done in small groups of relatives or friends all around the world.

So, this new event recalls the previous edition of Caccia alla Plastica on the island of Caprera, but with the innovation of an online support platform that allows to manage every challenge remotely. People from all over the world, divided into teams, will challenge each other by completing various challenges in 24 hours (to face the time zone). Everything revolves around cleaning a beach, a cliff or the seabed. So, you have to get your hands dirty, but also be creative to be able to win a challenge! A jury formed by many supporters of the project will decide the winners of each challenge.
