Friends, sailing, surf and awareness. The Good Karma Projects team sailed accross the mediterranean sea on the search of microplastics. Do you wanna know what did they find?

Mediterráneamente Plástico is a short documentary filmed by Joe Delahunty during the annual sailing regatta ‘Jaume I’ from Salou (Tarragona) to Mallorca. The documentary analyses the quantity of microplastics found in the Mediterranean sea and the impact of these ones on the environment. 

Unknown for most people the Mediterranean is one of the most polluted seas in the world. The United Nations Environment Programme has estimated that 650,000,000 t of sewage, 129,000 t of mineral oil, 60,000 t of mercury, 3,800 t of lead and 36,000 t of phosphates are dumped into the Mediterranean each year.

The investigation results showed that there is around 100.000 micro plastics per Km2, a similar density than the famous ‘trash islands’ in the Pacific Ocean.
The main goal of the documentary is to give visibility to the plastic pollution problem and create awareness about the huge amount of waste that we generate and ends in our seas.
