Big clean-up in Playa San Juan
More than 100 people gathered in Playa de San Juan to collaborate and enjoy a day of education and environmental action, organised by the Department of Environment.
The students of CEIP Adoración Rodríguez encouraged visitors who were enjoying the sea to help them with the cleaning of the sand of the beach and through the distribution of ashtrays.
Volunteer divers also participated, with the collaboration of the Municipal School of Nautical Sports who carried out cleaning of the seabed at the pier of Playa San Juan.
Councillor for the environment, Francisco Baute said: “All of us present have put our grain of sand on this day, but the important thing now is that the message will be deep and we make a continuous effort to keep our territory clean. Sometimes we do not realise the damage we do to marine fauna with gestures that can easily be avoided.”
Throughout the morning, the TV channel 24-7 Tenerife Online Tv made a special programme (and live broad-cast) with the protagonists of the day and experts who spoke about the environmental issue. There was also a musical performance by the local singer Luna Keller who presented a song dedicated to the sea.
