Cigarette butts at the Poetto beach – case study

Bikram Singh, Earth and Environmental Sciences student from Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany and Clean Coast Sardinia ambassador thanks to the Erasmus+ program, during his stay with us completed a Marine Litter course organised by UN Environment Programme together with Open Universiteit in the Netherlands.

In his assignment, he decided to focus on the problem of the presence of the cigarette butts at Poetto, a long stretch of sandy beach that belongs to two biggest municipalities on the island, Cagliari and Quartu Sant’Elena. You can read his research here.
