advance - together
First we want to say THANK YOU to all the cleaners and helper who fight for a clean beach and a sustainable future. During the last years we cleaned many beaches, where and when
It´s a sad reality, but the beach stays dirty because the waves are bringing every day more debris to the shores of our beautiful planet.

There is no trash! The waste we find on the beach is a resource! In general about 80% of it is plastic, based on petrochemicals.
Loads of the stuff we find is recycable, some ideas and methods: Econyl,
terracycle, Tapones solidario and we are sure there is lot more to find! In the future you will find
informations about this in the COUP-News.
Even the rest of the debris can be recycled! With modern tecniques we can extract synthetical-biu-fuel out of greenwaste and plastic´s - which is even more efficient then conventional bio-fuel. Read about this on the homepage of the enterprise CPD SWISS.

The biggest challenge is how tho get the microplastic off the beach, some ideas:
- “fishing microplastics ” with a broomer and a fishing net, works better in sand
- “microplastics bath ” with a shovel and a tub, better in sand as well.
Get rid of microplastics in stone dominated areas is almost impossibe and needs loads of patience!
However you pick up plastics, remember it´s a potentially toxic material, so please wear gloves.
We invite you to share informations and solutions with us! Lets move forward, together - strong - to a resource based economy. COUP Movies.
