We have public temporary fountains set up in various areas of Mallorca, with one currently providing free filtered water at   @cnamallorca   . As we are piloting these fountains, please help us by refilling your bottle and providing feedback on them. This can be anything from the look of the fountain, the water quality, the construction of the fountain itself, where you would like to see them setup next, or any other questions or concerns you may have. Simply send us an email to join  @cleanwave.org  , or leave a message in the comments below.   #pilotproject     #pilot     #cleanwavemovement     #founyain     #ecofil     #meetpat     #streetfountain     #publicfountain     #drinkingfountain     #greenliving     #onelessbottle

As another   @palmamarathon   comes to a close, we can’t help but cringe on the thousands upon thousands of plastic bottles consumed during such sporting events. Surely there must be a more sustainable way to host a marathon...leave your comment below 👇on how these events should be improved.   #cleanwavemovement     #palmamarathon     #marathon     #plasticbottles     #running     #runners     #longdistance     #maraton     #palmademallorca

We are incredibly excited and thankful to have an article about Cleanwave on this months   @flysas   inflight magazine   #scandinaviantravelermagazine   ! Cleanwave is only two years old, and all the support we have been receiving from the community has really allowed us to spread our wings 😉 and message globally, with this October issue expected to reach around 2.5 million travelers! Thank you to all our partners, refill points, volunteers, and friends for your constant support!

Cleanwave has a new refill point and we are particularly proud of the ethos of this one! They are called   @nu_market_   and are a grocery store and cafe that follow the zero waste and plastic free mentality the way more businesses should! They are putting a lot of effort to get all their products free of plastic by adding pressure on the suppliers to deliver orders plastic free and with re-usable containers. If you are in Palma, be sure to stop by plaza progreso and show these guys some support!   #numarket     #zerowasteshopping     #zerowastespain     #granelpalma     #frutadetemporada     #superalimentos     #palmacoffee     #superfood    #conciousliving     #cleanwavemovement     #refillpoint     #freewater     #noexcuseforsingleuse

Tetra Brick Part 2 - the truth behind ‘green’ single use plastic alternatives: In recent years, scientists have been racing to find an alternative to single use plastic water bottles and have come up with some prototypes, often derived from plants that supposedly degrade in natural environments and pose no risk to animals. But there are obvious problems with these efforts as these substitues can often only degrade in highly controlled environments which only exist in top of the line waste management facilities. One essentially needs an environment that has high enough heat and moisture levels that allow microbes to break down the polymer, but outside of a carefully controlled environment, that degradation may not and most likely will not occur due to these bottles also often containing plastic lining’s or chemicals that are unable to naturally degrade. The question therefore is… are companies telling us the full story? If they are saying it’s made from plants, that’s great, but what actually has to happen after it’s used for it to break down? What conditions are actually required? As consumers, we are responsible to do our own research and find sustainable alternatives to products that break the reigning paradigm of single use plastics. The most sustainable option is almost never going to be single use products. It’s dangerous if people equate ‘biodegradable’ and ‘recyclable’ without knowing the time and conditions involved — With the idea that it’s therefore OK to avoid changing habits. The most sustainable option is a reusable option and shift to a circular economy where we switch cheap single use items, for durable high-quality ones which can be recycled into new products at the end of their life. Essentially… We need to bring back to the ‘Milkman’ model to rethink plastic packaging.   #milkman     #bringbackthemilkman     #biodegradable     #tetrapak     #circulareconomy     #palmademallorca     #carton     #watercarton     #boxwater     #fake     #ecofriendly     #recycling     #cleanwavemovement     #rethinkplastic     #environment     #nonprofit

We keep seeing more and more companies falling for the 'green washing' ideology of replacing single-use plastic bottles for other equally terrible ones, such as the Tetra Paks. We wanted to make this post to hopefully shed some light about this topic... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For starters, Tetra Paks are made up of a number of components which are layered: paperboard (made from wood), polyethylene (a type of plastic) and aluminum. These different components give Tetra Paks their unique properties: keeping the liquids in but the microbes out, and a strong but lightweight container.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When a Tetra Pak is PROPERLY discarded, it should end up in the recycling plant, where all these component parts need to be separated out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, what does it mean to be recycled? Whilst recycling can be thought of as a way of converting waste into a new material, more accurately it means a process to return material to a previous stage in a process that operates as a cycle. After all, the word is “re-cycling”. The idea is to take a used product and turn them back into the same type of product, such as glass bottles being melted down and formed into new glass bottles. There is no loss of quality, so this recycling of glass can go on forever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When a product doesn’t get turned back into the same product, but one of lesser quality (as with plastic recycling) it isn’t recycled, it’s downcycled. Products that are downcycled often only undergo a limited number of cycles (maybe as few as 2) before reaching the end of their useful lives and ending up in landfill.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The other thing to alwyas remember about recycling, is just because something can be recycled, it doesn’t mean that it will be recycled. Tetra Pak estimate global recycling was less than 25% in 2013.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are still unsure about sustainable alternatives, please message our friends at   @savethemed   and ask them what options are best. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀   #plasticfree     #tetrapak     #facts     #hydration     #stayhydrated     #mineralwater     #waterincarton     #onthego     #sustainable

Small changes make BIG differences...today, the University students of the   @uibuniversitat   received subsidised bottles from the Faculty of Tourism which will make a GIANT impact in the amount of plastic bottles consumed on campus! Thank you UIB for taking such a pro-active and drastic approach to our single-use plastic crisis, and thank you to all the students for supporting a plastic free world and the   #cleanwavemovement  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...Spanish Below...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pequeños cambios hacen GRANDES diferencias ... ¡hoy, los estudiantes universitarios de   @uibuniversitat   recibieron botellas subsidiadas de la Facultad de Turismo.

What an incredible year it's been for collaborations with yet another fantastic group joining in on the   #plasticfree   movement.   @engelvoelkersmallorca   has joined our network of refill points where you can refill your bottle for free (in most locations), as well as provided Cleanwave bottles to their staff! Be sure to drop them a visit if you are around one of the many locations in Mallorca. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀   #cleanwavemovement     #engelvoelkers     #property     #realestate     #refillpoint     #collaboration     #freewater     #refill     #water     #h20     #bottle     #sustainable     #ecofriendly
