Brazil is the fourth largest producer of plastic waste in the world, with around 11.3 million tons. The country is only behind China, India, and the United States. This data comes from @wwfbrasil and has been collected in more than 200 countries.
The data is alarming, and we can not stand by idly, witnessing the deaths of thousands of marine species.
Athletes, sports enthusiasts, and organizers of Surfin Sem Fim rolled up their sleeves for a joint effort with some people engaged in the environmental cause for a weekend of beach cleaning.
Praia do Preá was the chosen beach, also referred to as the Mecca of Kitesurf, near Jericoacoara in Ceará. The starting point was in front of the Pousada Rancho do Peixe, a place known for hosting kitesurfers from all over the world.
