Stop the ALPs becoming Plastic Mountains
The aim of the ALP project is to safeguard high alpine habitat,
one of the last pristine environments in southern Europe.
Working with 4 very different alpine mountain huts
the project will develop and pilot a strategy
with each one to eliminate single use plastic items.
This will be combined with 15 clean up events along 150km of trail, lake shores,
alpine meadows, screes and around huts, an education training programme
involving hiking and alpine guides, park staff, local schools,
the tourism sector and institutions.
With over 150 members, of which La Sportiva is one,
the organisation has raised and funded over €3 million
of conservation projects around the world.
To name a few, EOCA has renovated trails in Macedonia,
Scotland, Austria and Nepal;
restored forests in the Czech Republic, Bolivia and Sweden;
improved wildlife habitats for elephants in
Thailand and Kenya, brown bears in northern Spain,
river dolphins in India, raptors in Georgia and falcons in Bulgaria
and cleared tonnes of rubbish from mountains and seas worldwide.
What does EOCA stand for?
EOCA is a non profit organisation set up to combine
the collective efforts of companies working in the European outdoor
industry to raise funds to protect, conserve and restore
threatened wild landscapes and habitats.
