Testimonies

Rodrigo Naranjo

NGO “Arica Marine Turtles” Volunteer

“The impact is very positive, really, because it makes awareness in our society, in our community, about everything that has to do with the cleanliness of our ocean. Olas Zero Plastic is very well related to what is happening nowadays in the world and in the oceans. It is our responsibility to reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans today … in the Chinchorro coast there lives one of the only colonies of turtles in Chile, the green turtles of the Pacific. We must take care of them, protect them, because all these plastics are a direct damage to their health”.

Camila Riquelme

Volunteer

“I think it’s important to clean the beaches because that trash later goes to the animals, most of them die and our planet needs them. In addition, some go to the sea, to other animals that we eat after, and also harm us. After all, the garbage that we throw affects us and affects the planet”.

Alejandra Correa

“It is important to clean the beaches of Arica because it helps us all to become aware, it has been an enriching experience … the truth is that we can do important human work. This does not end here, this must continue. I feel proud to belong to Golden Omega, it is a privilege to work at a company that cares about the environment”.
