Club de Mar Mallorca and Ecomar donate 2,592 Coca-Cola product to Padre Montalvo Association
Club de Mar Mallorca and Ecomar Foundation have donated a total of 2,592 Coca-Cola cans to Padre Montalvo Association, all thanks to a project about environmental cleaning.
On July 17th 2014, the sailing school students in Club de Mar Mallorca participated in the coast cleaning campaign organized jointly with Ecomar Foundation and Coca Cola throughout the country.

As a result from that day cleaning the sea, 120 kgs of waste and garbage were collected and have now translated into 2,592 cans delivered today by Coca Cola, because of their collaboration with the Ecomar Foundation. At the same time, Club de Mar Mallorca and Ecomar have donated these beverages to the Padre Montalvo Association, a non-profit organization that manages a home for children from broken homes.

The children fostered by this entity, established in 1984, are taken care of at all times by a team of professional educators who work to provide a nice family environment. Among their leisure activities, some of them have chosen sailing or kayaking, which take place in Club de Mar Mallorca.

To this product-giving day attended Ricardo Muntaner, Coca Cola Exterior Relations manager; Theresa Zabell, double olympic sailing champion, Ecomar Foundation's president and Club de Mar Mallorca's sports advisor, and Margarita Vidaurreta, manager in Padre Montalvo Association.

Theresa Zabell made today a reminder of the celebration of the Earth's day and said 'this planet has this name because someone made a mistake. It should be called 'Ocean' ot 'Sea' because 70% of it is water, so if we want to keep this planet clean we need to take care of our oceans'.

Margarita Vidaurreta has explained that part of the donation will go to 20 youngsters between 6 and 17 years old who come to our home in Palma, and the rest will be shared with the Asociación Solidarios Montesión, dedicated to give food, clothes and toys among families in need.
