Anstascia and Vivie-Ann aka BLOND:ISH have teamed up with International Music Summit, Casita Verde, Ibiza Preservation Foundation and Woomoon to run a Beach Clean on Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza on August 21st.
Each year, Ibiza attracts thousands of excited tourists and ravers to its vibrant music scene and tranquil shores. However, every day a shocking amount of abandoned litter covers the beautiful island beaches, and it’s estimated that plastic could outweigh the fish in our oceans by 2050, and with an estimated 1.4 billion pounds of rubbish ending up in the sea every year.
This environmental problem is very close to the duo’s hearts, which have spearheaded the sustainable raving movement after they realized how much litter people leave at the end of a concert or festival, “everybody left, and they left behind them this mountain of plastic bottles. This vision devastated us. A beautiful sunrise in front of thousands of discarded water bottles. That’s why the sustainable rave movement is so important; we need to realise what’s happening in the world and that every decision that we make will affect our surroundings.”
Everyone will meet at 18:00 at BEACHOUSE for a 18:30 start at Playa d’en Bossa. The pair will be joined by event partners Casita Verde and Woomoon, along with island locals and activists including Dylan Blue, and several other friends and DJs. As the first beach restaurant in Ibiza to ban disposable plastics, BEACHOUSE will also be involved, and will keep everyone hydrated throughout the clean.
BLOND:ISH will also play the Ibiza Preservation Foundation’s tenth anniversary on August 22nd, where all proceeds will go towards their constant conservation efforts. Tickets available here.
