Spain has taken a step to get rid of scrap tires from beaches as part of the Libera Project. The measure united well-known brands and corporations such as Pirelli Tires, Michelin, Goodyear and others; they joined Signus – Spanish scrap tire management authority – and the Network of Marine Rangers to advance the program labeled “1 Square Metre by Nature”. All parties involved in the initiative sought an aim to effectively remove and manage waste tires so they could be reused.

This ambitious plan was implemented on the beaches across Spain ranging from prominent and large sites of Catalonia, Andalusia to smaller places like Ceuta.

The organizers are hopeful that this step will demonstrate that waste collection can positively impact the environment, and this will also help to raise awareness among the public.
