From 13th – 17th July Worldrise Onlus participated in Porto Rubino, the annual musical event which celebrates the sea and calls for its protection. Porto Rubino, now in its fourth edition, has always had the protection of the marine environment at heart. This year Worldrise partnered with the event along with fellow sustainability partner Ogyre (the first global platform for the recovery of litter from the ocean). Worldrise founder Mariasole Bianco was joined by Italian singer Renzo Rubino as they educated the audience on Worldrise’s Ecorider Project, which aims to reduce the impact of the music industry on marine ecosystems. Worldrise also organised a beach clean-up and distributed pocket ashtrays among festival participants in a step to educate party goers on the damage of cigarette littering.
