Marine waste is a major problem, not only for the environment, but also for human health. Moreover, the effect it has is not only aesthetic, but also represents a complex and multi-sectoral challenge, with significant implications for human activities around the world.
When it comes to this alarming problem, the Adriatic Sea is no exception. This is why the Green Sail initiative has been founded - to promote sustainable tourism and environmentally friendly practices within the nautical sector, as well as to prevent pollution of the sea and marine environment.
Although a lot of people still don't pay attention to this issue, the sad truth is that waste in the Adriatic Sea is becoming more present and diverse. So, the next time you throw anything in the sea, just remember how long it takes for the following pieces of commonly found waste to decompose.
