NO PLASTIC PEOPLE

Embodying the philosophy that a small action can make a big impact, the non-profit organisation Love Ibiza Now (LIN) has been set up to educate and encourage locals, businesses and tourists to make more eco-conscious, sustainable choices in their daily habits, and to ‘tread more lightly on our island before it’s too late’. Summers undoubtedly attract an astounding number of people to the go-to holiday destination, accommodating an additional four million tourists along with the island’s 150,000 residents. Unfortunately, the resulting pressure on the infrastructure, as well as the direct impact on Ibiza’s environmental health are all too clear. Love Ibiza Now, co-founded by Ana Lui, Matias Alexandro and Hjordis Fogelberg, has the primary objective to rid the island’s shorelines of plastic and any other harmful waste, with the final aim to move towards a plastic-free Ibiza. Throughout the winter months, the organisation brings together the local community to clean the island’s beaches and shores but encourages everyone to adopt the responsibility in collecting any waste to combat the constant battle against plastic. The events have particularly attracted Ibiza’s youngsters by educating and raising awareness about the global issues regarding plastic pollution, in addition to advocating the importance in keeping a clean environment on the island. In the hopes of spreading the message in a quick and productive fashion, Love Ibiza Now has and continues to join forces with a number of organisations to discuss easy solutions regarding how to replace, reduce, reuse and recycle plastic products. Ibiza Preservation Fund (IPF) and the Marilles Foundation are just two movements actively uniting to assist in coordinating and launching a campaign towards an Ibiza that is free of plastic. Head to the Love Ibiza Now website, set up as a resource for anyone interested in improving their eco-footprint on the island, including receiving useful advice and recommendations. In particular, the website’s Take Action page has a tailored section for villa owners, providing some fantastic steps that any responsible owner should strongly consider in order to preserve the iconic beauty and nature that make Ibiza the island that it is. loveibizanow.com 53
