During the Plastic Ocean Summit, one of the new innovative developments related to the tourism industry will be the launch of the plastic-free beaches located worldwide. Under this category, only beaches/ marine areas that carry the White Flag CSMA certification will be put on the World Green Beach City Map. The mapping of the plastic-free beaches is a part of the OACM global campaign to create and expand Certified Safe Marine Areas (CSMAs) globally as a future investment in tourism industry promotion contributing to minimizing the plastic content in the oceans. Beaches represent the most frequently used marine areas by tourists and the local population, and therefore they can be polluted with plastic and other non-degradable waste. White Flag is the only sustainable ocean cleaning system that has been introduced globally to guarantee and safeguard the quality of physically cleaned beaches from plastic - representing today's most innovative global brand and ecological symbol that is a part of the blue economy concept.
By official launching of the World Green Beach City Map, global tourism industry sector will provide the access information to the public on which countries, cities, hotels provide this basic and most fundamental right or service to its visitors and tourists, customers who contribute to the protection of aquatic, marine and human life. Global public knowledge about the plastic epidemic and pollution in the ocean has become common public knowledge, and the public has very high concessions which make the tourism industry responsible to provide concrete measures towards the ocean protection and preservation.
