Find out more here!


The "LIBERA, united against littering" project was created in 2017 to stop the consequences of rubbish discarded in natural spaces in Spain's various ecosystems. It was created by the Spanish environmental NGO, SEO/BirdLife, in partnership with Ecoembes, the non-profit environmental organisation that promotes the circular economy through the recycling of packagin.

Why combat littering?

LIBERA aims to help the environment by doing its part in the fight against climate change by promoting the conservation of nature. And to do this, we must tackle a key problem: litter.

The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness and bring about a change in habits, starting with the reduction of waste generation, continuing with reuse, the repair of that which is already available; and of course, dealing with the problem of littering, the waste that ends up in nature.

To do this, we at LIBERA propose a comprehensive approach to the problem with three areas of action:
Icono conocimiento


In order to address the problem of littering, we need to know more about its origin, behaviour and where it accumulates.

Icono Prevención


We instil the importance of keeping environments clean and we cultivate a respect for nature.

Icono Participación


We encourage people to go out to the countryside and clean up what nobody should have tarnished.

What can you do?

Join the fight against litter individually or as a group.
