Bond villain turned plastic hero: Javier Bardem cleans up Costa Brava
17 May 2018 @ 20:19

BOND villain Javier Bardem has been out sailing off the shores of Catalunya to collect plastic waste from the sea – partly to help out, and partly to raise awareness of the problem.

Bardem, who is married to Almodóvar Girl-turned-Hollywood regular Penélope Cruz, went out from the port of Blanes (Girona province) and all the plastic waste he scooped out of the water will be sent to a company which melts it down to make sunglasses.

The Skyfall 'baddie' has helped promote several environmental campaigns, including the one Greenpeace is currently running in the Antarctic.

And he was horrified by what he saw when he took part in the plastic-clearing exercise in Blanes.

“We've only been out for a couple of hours, but we cast the net and you wouldn't believe what got caught up in it,” Bardem said as he got off the boat on his return to Blanes port.

“Everything from balls to mains water pipes, flags, bottles, golf balls and old fishing nets – stuff that takes over 300 years to biodegrade.”
