Dear beach supporters,
First of all: all the best wishes for 2019 and a HUGE THANK YOU for helping us reach our goal!
Last week was not a great start of 2019 regarding the plastic situation. On the 2nd of January, 270 containers, 3 of them containing poisonous substances, fell of the MSC ship Zoe, near the German island Borkum. This caused a massive pollution in the North Sea. Because of the currents, a lot of the content washed up on shore of the Dutch Wadden islands. A lot of people went over to Ameland, Vlieland, Terschelling and Schiermonnikoog to help clean up this mess.
Since we are so involved in this topic, naturally we got on a boat and helped clean up the beach of Terschelling, together with more than 100 volunteers.
It felt good to be part of something bigger than us!
You’ll hear from us soon.
