Ibiza Preservation Foundation
Plastic Free Ibiza & Formentera is a movement launched in 2018 which brings together 20 local organisations, which aim at preserving and taking care of the island’s environment.
The vision of Plastic Free Ibiza & Formentera is to eliminate single-use plastics in Ibiza and Formentera by 2023. The movement’s mission is to bring together all the different stakeholders which want to take part in protecting our islands from plastic pollution.
Plastic Free Ibiza & Formentera would like to collaborate with companies and events that want to eliminate single-use plastics. This is why it has launched a new campaign which awards businesses with the Plastic Free Ibiza & Formentera certificate: Become a Star. It invites innovative and leading businesses to start eliminating and reducing single-use plastics to protect the environment of our islands.
Moreover, Plastic Free Ibiza & Formentera are the local organisers and representatives of the global movement World Cleanup Day. On the 21st of September 2019, Ibiza will participate in a cleanup which will take place on the same day in over 157 countries around the world. The objective of the World Cleanup Day isn’t just to clean natural environments, but to increase people’s awareness regarding the severity of the incorrect management of our waste. If you are a company which is interested in participating in this event, please contact with Plastic Free Ibiza & Formentera.
