The environmental action day is also supported by IMS and the Ibiza Preservation Foundation
With plastic pollution in our seas and oceans a growing problem that's coming under increasing scrutiny, Canadian house and techno duo BLOND:ISH are getting their hands dirty and leading an effort to clean up one of Ibiza's most popular beaches, Playa d'en Bossa, this coming Tuesday (21 August).
Plastic pollution is a pressing and very real concern. Some 635 million tonnes of the stuff end up in the planet's seas and oceans each year, and it's estimated that plastics could actually outweigh fish by 2050 - the impact on wildlife has already been devastating, and the situation's only getting worse. There's a lot to do, for sure - but anyone who's anywhere near a beach can help by taking their rubbish home with them, and by clearing up mess left by others. Which is what BLOND:ISH will be doing on Tuesday!
The clean-up effort is supported by various Ibiza-based organisations, including the Ibiza Preservation Foundation, and the International Music Summit. IMS head Ben Turner said: "‘International Music Summit is delighted to support the BLOND:ISH Ibiza beach clean. We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and continue to develop ways to implement sustainability on a larger scale. We are glad to be able to play our part in this important initiative."
If you're in Ibiza and want to get involved, then head to BEACHOUSE on Playa d'en Bossa at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
