Each One of Us can be a
Game Changer by applying the 3Rs
— Reduce — ReUse — Recycle
Each one of us is a Citizen and can make a difference
We are Citizens and we founded DIRTY70 because we want to change the game about the disastrous environmental situation of our seas and oceans.
Citizen Science means that scientist work together with the public on research projects to collect or analyse data. We decided to start our activities to help scientists to obtain more qualified data, leading to updated studies and bringing new economical and strategic prevention policy by Industrial Partners.
HOW WE REACH OUR OBJECTIVES
We apply scientist standard procedures in an organized sequency to collect samples properly and maintain a healthy and high quality water for all.
Many initiatives and ideas are born from the will to find solutions to stop this disaster. It seems that the scientific world does not have enough qualified and standardized data to fully understand how plastic litter interacts with the natural environment and our health.
