Porto Santo Sem Lixo Marinho Seal is extended to social entities and schools

The “Porto Santo Sem Lixo Marinho” (Porto Santo Without Marine Waste) Project Seal has been extended to social entities – Non-Governmental Organizations, community groups, and institutions with a social character – and schools, and is available since May 2022.

With the extension, we intend to involve the entire community in the fight against the problem of marine litter and disposable plastic, assuming as commitments, the participation in marine litter collection campaigns, the provision of reusable containers for internal use, the collaboration in awareness and environmental education initiatives, among other actions that reflect a social and environmentally responsible attitude.
