Beaches present an ideal opportunity for advertising this project and drawing attention to the cause. Beach umbrellas showing the project logo, website and LIFE+ logo will be produced and distributed via existing umbrella rental kiosks and concessions located on selected beaches in Malta and Gozo.
In tandem with this, adhesive grommets will be produced and placed on bins on the same beaches. These will carry a message aimed at the public, reminding them that every bit of litter, no matter how small, may pose a threat to the marine ecosystem. The grommets will also bear the project logo and LIFE+ logo.
These items will be purchased through external assistance, following the assessment of quotations obtained from the market. They will be finalised by the end of April 2013, and installed each year by the end of May, in time for the bathing season.
