June 3, 2019 – Croatia’s beaches are filling up for the summer season – play your part to keep them clean with BlueBag and win an eco-adventure holiday to amazing Palagruza.

As previously reported on TCN, among the many global initiatives to clean up our oceans and beaches is a rather nice Croatian initiative called BlueBag.

The concept of BlueBag is simple. Make a campaign to clean up the Adriatic, find local partners to support and offer distribution points, and encourage everyone who loves the sea – from sailors to sun-worshippers, to take 10-15 minutes from their enjoyment of Paradise, and give something back. Full up one blue bag with trash from the sea or beach, and dispose of it. Apart from improving things for those who come after you, you have the added karma of enjoying a deserted beach which was strewn with trash washed ashore before you arrived. 

BlueBag started on the island of Krk and is now expanding elsewhere, as is the sophistication of its collection bags with the launch of the new Eco Nautical Starter Box, sponsored by FINA.

And this summer, this is one more added incentive to help out with the BlueBag initiative – a free eco-adventure holiday to magical and distant Palagruza, the furthest inhabited island on the Croatian coast (albeit only by the lighthouse keeper).

The Seashore of Our Posterity is rewarding you with an eco-adventure on Palagruža! 

1. Get a blue bag from our sponsors or use any other bag

2. Collect the debris the sea washed up on the shore

3. Document your accomplishment of cleaning the coast and publish it on this page or share through Instagram and/or Facebook with a tag #BlueBagEco. Encourage your friends to do the same.

Every month we will pick the most original submission. The lucky volunteers will be rewarded with an eco-adventure from 18th to 25th October 2019. We will sail to Palagruža, clean the beach, and spend 7 days visiting Lastovo, Hvar, Vis… Where the wind takes us.

The contest is open from May 1st to September 30th.

You can still collect debris when September ends. Whenever you do it, in the sound of the waves you can hear the sea, saying THANK YOU.

How to participate in the BlueBag initiative? Take 5 minutes of your holiday and gather debris that washed ashore on some hidden, less accessible beach. When you return to the port just leave the Blue Bag in a dumpster. You will help the sea. You will feel better.

The goal is for every sailor to collect a bag of garbage during the course of a season. If that can be accomplished, there would be no need for various missions and massive resources to keep the coastline clean.
