Our way to
Our idea -
Our aim is to create a website for children made by children. There are no local websites in the Balearic Islands which explains what's going on and how we children can make a difference.
Normally adults take over and make the final decisions, as they have the financial power over us. They should start listening and empowering us to take ownership of our future sea. We are the people who will make the change and will grow up in the Balearic islands; therefore we should be the people who take ownership of the sea because we need to think about the future. We are running out of times and tides.
Children constantly rely on parents and adults actions. We believe that children should raise their voices because we are the next generation. We have the solution, we are the solution. We are Gen Z.

What are we suggesting?
We believe that there is an unrealistic amount of plastic produced by supermarkets and companies in general. Supermarkets now put over 900,000 tonnes of plastic packaging on their shelves a year. We want to help reduce the amount of plastic, before it ends up in our sea. Are you ready to join this mission with us?
We are asking children, like you, to help us achieve this. Although your voice isn't herd in the adult world, everyone can make a difference, even you. So if you don't mind, you can help us by buying more Eco products, from skin care to snacks, this is because Eco products have little plastic and are biodegradable ( better for the environment). You can also support local businesses such as market shops to limit the produce travel and their carbon footprint.
Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. The recovery of energy from waste materials is often included in this concept. The recyclability of a material depends on its ability to reacquire the properties it had in its virgin or original state.
Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat, or light. Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either foreign substances/energies or naturally occurring contaminants.
When an item can be used repeatedly more than once. The item or object can be used again and again after use.
Reducing is the first and most effective of the three R's. It means reducing your consumption or buying less for example buying less plastic packaged items. Designing items like plastic bottles in ways that use less material is another way to reduce consumption.
Although you don't have much control over what you buy ,at home you can still refuse products that have plastic packaging. Stand up to your parents and tell them you refuse to use plastic packaged products. Some objects and products can't be avoided but many can, for example buy at markets or use reusable bags and buy Eco products.
