Clean Wave Creates Water Stations for Safe Consumption
“This picture was taken for our Land & Sea beach cleanup. The team from @marbalearsupcenter together with @strandkind_am_meer collaborated to form this fantastic circle to allow us to spread #cleanwavemovement and talk about a circular economy.
A circular economy is an alternative to the traditional linear economy which is characterized by the “make, use, dispose” mentality. In a circular economy, we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate the products and materials at the end of each service life. This is the direction the world needs to head in order to become sustainable. ” – Ben Lancia, Cleanwave
Cleanwave is a non-profit in the Balearic Islands in Spain that is creating a network of water refill stations around the islands where the public can have access to refill their reusable water bottles. These locations include restaurants, bars, shops, businesses, yoga and fitness studios around the islands.
They promote the sale of reusable, eco-friendly bottles as well as offer community outreach through education, beach clean ups and the supplying of plastic-free water bottle solutions at events. Cleanwave collaborates with their local government regarding litigation about this ongoing concern throughout the Ballearic Islands.
