    With the exhibition “Sea of Plastic”, we want to draw your attention to the problem of plastic debris. Plastic is a remarkable material with exceptional properties but plastic litter needs to be properly managed, sorted and recycled. Despite awareness of how to manage; reduce, recycle, reuse, our seas are full of plastic debris.  This exhibition introduces you to the most common marine debris. We’ve added a specification and a story. The exhibition was on display in Rab’s winter cinema from 20 May to 3 June 2022. We ask you to reduce your use of single-use plastics and use others more environmentally friendly solutions.

    More than 125 kg of marine debris were collected from Stiznja to Sipnate West part was mainly full of hard plastic, south part was covered with lighter packages, fishing nets, bottles, lids, plastic bags, etc. We see raising awareness of plastic pollution in the marine environment with the involvement of local community as an important part of the solution to the cleaner seas. It was lovely to see the energy and the effort of the children playing with plastic debris in our workshop. We are also very thankful for great contribution of sea kayakers volunteered to be part of the event.
