AAE works to inform and mobilize a 'culture of sustainability that reduces the amount of garbage that reaches our seas'. Based in Spain, they achieve this via a variety of communications platforms including the media, via networking with hundreds of organizations which organize coastal and beach cleanups, and promoting citizen science, to increase awareness of the problem of marine plastic pollution. Their website includes an interesting database in which an analysis of the type of debris collected can be found.
