Do not hesitate to ask us questions about the wastes you have found or to write us anything that seems useful for the Ocean Initiatives. Feel free, the best ideas never remain stowed in the drawers.Nous avons été surpris par le nombre de déchets présent, il y avait un sac d'ordure ménagère jeté à l'eau avec au moins 12kg de déchets à l'intérieur. Une énorme quantité de pneus immergés également. Nous avons décidé de poursuivre cette initiative en créant une association : Rémora Grand Est afin de renouveler cette démarche dans tous les cours d'eaux du secteur et toujours en embarcations légères (Kayaks, canoës).
