Promar - Prevention of Marine Litter in the Caribbean Sea

Promoting Circular Economy Solutions in Eight Countries in the Caribbean

As many as 200,000 pieces of plastic have been detected per square kilometer on the coastline of the north-eastern Caribbean. The majority of the plastic waste originates from Caribbean countries and northern waters. Therefore, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) is choosing to fund the “PROMAR” project.

Watch the video on why we have to act now on marine litter!

PROMAR is contributing to the reduction of waste streams, namely plastic packaging and single-use plastics, into the Caribbean Sea while promoting circular economy solutions in the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Colombia, the British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts & Nevis, Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana and Suriname. One aspect of PROMAR's project activities is to raise awareness about the importance of preventing marine litter and to educate about how to do so. 

The video below was created by the PROMAR project partner Parley for the Oceans to give an impression of the beautiful "Spaceship Earth" that we are trying to protect and explains why we need a healthy marine ecosystem to sustain the planet as we know it.
