MauritaVie - Waste collection in Mauritania
MauritaVie is a charity created in 2020 by OLVEA Mauritania’s employees to support collective social, cultural, educational and environmental actions in Mauritania.
Last week, MauritaVie organised its first environmental action in Nouadhibou (Mauritania). In partnership with local organizations, 45 volunteers collected waste on the beach.
In total, more than 400 bags were filled with various types of waste (plastic bottles, packaging, fishing ropes and nets, tyres, etc.) during a 3-hour collection period.
Following this action, the volunteers met for an awareness-raising and exchange session on plastic pollution and the eco-friendly attitude to adopt on a daily basis.
