This astounding initiative by the Oceans4life non profit environmental association is their second attempt to break a Guinness World Record. The main event is happening on World Oceans Day, this coming Saturday 8 June at a beach called La Gaviota, best accessed from the road between the Las Terrazas Shopping Centre and the Mirador shopping centre in the municipality of Telde.  Here is where the meeting will take place 

Gran Canaria is aiming to beat the Guinness World Record for the highest number of nationalities participating at the same time in a beach cleanup.

The award winning environmental group Oceans4Life, with the unstoppable Julie Dass at the helm, is to be joined by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria and the Telde town hall in organising the environmental volunteering clean-up day for World Oceans Day, with at least 55 nationalities already registered, the record attempt appears well on track.

There is only 6 left to find.

Volunteers from 6 countries are still needed for this record attempt. We need representatives from Vietnam, Senegal, Luxembourg, Greece, Korea, Indonesia, Nigeria and Morocco.
There has also been a request for a native Hawai’ian despite their status no longer being that of a sovereign nation or group of kingdoms, but as a state of the USA…

Please contact Oceans4Life for more information.

More volunteers and back ups for the nationalities are very much needed for the beach clean up, so register now.

Oceans4Life Gran Canaria is a non profit organisation based in Gran Canaria where a group of international volunteers wish to remove as much plastic from the seas and beaches as possible. They organise beach cleans and under water dives to go looking for debris and rubbish. This way aiming to keep our oceans clean and our marine life safe.

The organisation offers talks and presentations in primary schools to help educate the youth and to show them the importance of picking up litter and recycling. The ultimate goal is to reduce as much plastic as they can on the island of Gran Canaria.

The main goal is to eliminate all plastic straws on the island and replace them with paper, bamboo or metal straws. All these items can be bought online in their shop.

All our Zero Waste products can only be found online in our Zero Waste shop. Please buy environmental friendly products and say NO to plastics.

Take a look on their website or on their Facebook or Instagram page for more information.

Join our cause and help keep the beaches and the ocean plastic free!
