The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands and the Gravity Wave association have a clear objective: to live in a world with plastic-free seas. In this quest they have joined forces under the PLASTIC FREE OCEANS movement to restore the health of the oceans.

In the first phase of the campaign, 10,000 kg of plastic have been removed from the sea. Now, they have proposed to close the loop in the circular economy, giving a second life to these fishing nets that have been collected and transformed into urban furniture for different Spanish coastal cities such as Calpe and, mainly, Palma. Specifically, 10 benches and 10 litter bins have been delivered, 8 of each in Palma.

These items have been on display to the public since 21 March, following an opening ceremony attended by the director of the APB, Jorge Nasarre; the CEO of Gravity Wave, Julen Rodríguez; Miriam Arístegui, from Alcat Alianzas Estratégicas y Partnerships and Domingo Bonnín, president of the Cofradía de Pescadores de San Pedro de Palma (San Pedro de Palma Fishermen's Guild).

The aim of this event was to highlight World Water Day and the importance of caring for water, especially the oceans.

Gravity Wave

Gravity Wave is a social, circular economy and environmentally conscious company, driven to solve one of humanity's greatest challenges: plastic pollution of seas and oceans. They clean plastic from the seabed and transform it into valuable, long-lasting products through a circular economy process. They also prevent the plastic that is still generated from ending up back in the water. That is why they work together with fishermen, people, companies and organisations through the movement #PlasticFreeOceans.
