Lefrik and Healthy Seas advocate for Spanish coasts free of ghost nets!

Since joining 1% for the Planet in 2020, Lefrik has been looking for partners who strive to maintain our oceans and landfills clean while finding solutions to lower the impact and waste of human activity. By joining forces with Healthy Seas and supporting Ghost Diving Costa Brava project in Northeast Spanish coastlines, through a monetary donation where Lefrik customers voices were listen, we got a step closer to these goals.

Volunteer divers removed roughly 100kg of ghost nets from Tossa de Mar area in Costa Brava during two cleanups back in June and July 2021, funded by Lefrik donation. Initiatives like this aim to improve Mediterranean water pollution issue, which was one of the main causes why Spain was once declared Europe’s most polluted country by the European Environment Agency.
