Save the Beach comes from the desire to give back to the beaches that have given us so much. It is a platform for social responsibility that oversees the care of the beaches and coasts of Europe.
Since its birth in 2008, Save the Beach has managed to revitalize more than 4 beaches across Europe. Celebrities like Bar Refaeli, Christina Andersen, and Custo Barcelona have already joined our cause.
This year, we have a new edition of Save the Beach. In 2013, as in previous years, we will save the European beach that gets the most votes among all the beaches that people propose through our website.
We all have a special bond with some beaches. If your beach is at risk, propose it as a candidate for the Save the Beach 2013 cleanup.
All you have to do is tell us why you think your beach deserves to be rescued. You can use videos, photos or any content with which you feel comfortable to tell your story.
Of all the proposals received, we will choose the best and the author will win a trip for two to Ibiza.
Join Save the Beach and help us save your beach!
