Finally we are able to travel to Malaga in the beginning of August. we plan to explore the area around Nerja and specially Almeria were spain grow much of europe´s fruits and vegetables in a huges area called “the sea of plastic”. Annually more than 31.000 hectares of plastic greenhouses that are visible from space.                                                                We discovered that every time after heavy rain, the rivers in this area are flooded with plastic trash coming from the greenhouses and floating fast towards the Mediterranean. We will investigate how to get started here to pull the huges amount of plastic trash out of the rivers to prevent more plastic from reaching the sea.
