Reducing Waste

Reducing waste can be done in many ways. By becoming more aware of your food dietary choices and habits or reducing your consumption of plastic – one of the main pollutants of the ocean. For example switching to reusable bags, water bottles or other eco, organic, reused or fair and circular products. Enjoy a nice day at the local market with friends and family to purchase locally produced fruits and vegetables of the season, rather than choosing pre-wrapped produce from the supermarkets, supporting not only local farmers but also the environment.

How can you help as a consumer?

  •  Reduce of refuse single use packaging
  •  Bring your own lunchbox, cup of lunch wrap
  •  Shop with reusable bags, bread bags and vegetable bags
  •  Pick up plastics and litter from the street and the water
  •  Choose fresher products rather then ready meals and salads

What does Ecomondo do to protect the oceans and to inspire?

Our founder started diving up litter from the Mediterranean Sea almost 20 years ago. Single use plastic bottles were dancing on the bottom of the crystal clear water. What were they doing there? People gave him strange looks as he brought plastics to shore, but this was the start of a bigger movement. Now everybody knows about beach clean-ups and numerous organisations such as the Ocean Cleanup. Ecomondo works together with organisations like By the Ocean we Unite, the Plastic Soup Surfer, Great Bubble Barrier, Grondstofjutters and they frequently help organising city- or beach cleanups.
