Formentera pushes back Sunday's beach-cleaning due to good weather

Neteja escoles platgesThe Formentera Council's environmental office has postponed the beach-cleaning outing originally scheduled to take place this Sunday, 22 November, in the Ses Illetas zone of the island. Department head Daisee Aguilera pointed to the spell of good weather over the last few days and the recent beach-cleaning carried out by groups of school children as the motives behind the office's decision to «postpone Sunday's community cleaning effort until future storms require further action».

Taking stock after schools coordinate beach-combings

All told, when on 27 November the last group comes back from the beach, 380 local kids between 4 and 12 will have done their part tidying up at the Ses Salines park and Migjorn and ses Platgetes beaches. At the end of each outing, office of environment staff lead recycling workshops and talk to pupils about properly separating waste before tossing it in the bin. «The goal is to raise awareness from a young age», said Councillor Aguilera, who was sure to thank local schools for their involvement.
