Did you know that different parts of the same island can have completely different types of plastic trash?


In Curaçao, the RESEMBID – funded project carried out by  Green Phenix  is aimed at reducing the amount of plastic pollution that ends up in the marine environment.


The data collected with the Litterati app showed significant differences between the Leeward and the Windward side beaches of the island. On the Leeward side, most items were left by consumers on Curacao, such as bottles, cigarette butts and bottle caps. On the Windward side, there was an accumulation of litter that is from other places as well as ocean activities. Here, besides bottles and bottle caps, many plastic fragments were found.
