Surfrider Foundation Paris Chapter
We decided to organize an event with the Paris branch of the Zero Waste France association. We focused on the cigarette butt in the Bastille district (Paris). The result defies all argument: 165 piles, i.e. 16500 cigarette butts. Passers-by and locals were struck by our Initiatives, giving us the opportunity to create a special awareness-raising time with them.

The impact that waste had on the environment - of whatever nature - was our only concern. This concern is ongoing and our participation in Ocean Initiatives is simply a matter of becoming aware that many of the items of litter that we pick up - even in Switzerland - may potentially end up in the seas. It also seemed important to us to provide information to Ocean Initiatives in support of your work in influencing the authorities and public opinion
