A project that will have as its operational base is the city of Gabicce Marein the province of Pesaro and Urbino.

The aim of the collection will be to collect as much waste as possible along the Baia Vallugola route, between the beach and the parks. This will make it possible to draw up a complete report. This will be provided at a later time to Beak free from plastic. The latter is a citizen science initiative that involves recording data on polluting waste (mostly plastic), helping companies to take responsibility and improve their production.
