Lebanon Launches New Initiative to Combat Maritime Plastic Pollution

Lebanese civil society and the European Union legation in Lebanon have launched a new environmental initiative tackling marine litter. The joint initiative is part of the “Bahr Bala Plastic” project, which aims to raise awareness about the dangers related to plastic and reducing its use. The project, funded by the EU and co-managed by the Lebanon Eco Movement and Lebanon Environment Forum, will allow small non-profit and for-profit organizations to receive financial support for local initiatives aimed at combatting plastic pollution along the Lebanese coast.
