Thousands of Israelis Vie for World Record: Largest Beach Clean-Up
Thousands of volunteers are expected to take part in an attempt to break the world record for the largest beach clean-up on Israel’s coasts along the Mediterranean Sea and the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) on October 30.
The event was organized by the Mediterranean People coalition, environmental groups, local authorities, and thousands of volunteers. The goal is to raise awareness of the importance of cleaning the environment and beaches and to influence decision-makers concerning establishing additional marine reserves, banning plastic at beaches, and enforcement.
Local authorities have continued working throughout the coronavirus crisis to keep beaches clean along the Kinneret. Every year, about eight million tons of plastic are thrown into the world’s seas and oceans. (JPost / VFI News)
