Fernando visits his native Venice, Italy, every summer to dedicate himself to caring for her. On his walks he takes all the garbage he gets on the way.
It is never too late to join good and just causes. This 85-year-old grandfather knows that well , who at his advanced age is leading a movement to clean the beaches of the plastic and the polluting waste they leave on them.
His name is Fernando, and in the summer of each year he returns to his native Venice , Italy , where he not only visits his beloved land, but has also committed himself to cleaning it up, in order to help it become a friendlier place.
As published in its social networks by the Italian organization Plastic Free (Without plastic), dedicated to informing and raising awareness about the danger that plastic represents on the planet, Fernando has proposed this mission in order to help his people and his beloved Venice .
“Fernando, 85 years old, of Venetian origin, passionate about Nordic walking , every summer in his native land, walking, collects the waste that he finds on his way. A pride for us ”, shared Plastic Free .
He is an example for both older and younger adults, because there is always time to join such necessary movements as this one.
And it seems that in Plastic Free many grandparents have been seen collaborating with this mission, which shows that age is never an impediment to doing a good deed both for the planet and for society.
Benedict is the case of another grandfather who has joined in cleaning the waste spaces left by others. “He is Benedict, 82 years old. No excuses, no talks, just facts. Online awareness raising, concrete actions in the area, countless projects ”, said this organization in another publication.
