ECO ANGELS is a concept created by Kate Powers, co-founder of the restaurant and sports bar STARS’N’BARS in Monaco. A dedicated environmentalist, Kate organizes unofficial “teams” of volunteers each year after major events on the port—-Grand Prix, Yacht Show, Jumping, etc—supporting the local waste authority in picking up plastic debris before it falls into the port. The ECO ANGELS is now the umbrella name for the volunteers who join Kate in her endeavor to reduce plastic pollution.
During the Monaco Yacht Show, STARSNBARS staff will wear ECO ANGEL t-shirts generously provided by YACHTING PAGES MEDIA GROUP and we will create communications tools to spread the message over those four days including digital press releases, advertising on English speaking Riviera Radio, messages on the 25 television screens in the restaurant as well as displayed in our digital menu by BOOKVIDEO.
Undoubtedly, visitors and exhibitors will see Kate and her team pop up at locations throughout the show reminding everyone that by 2050, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by weight. On Sunday, September 30, volunteer students from the International School of Monaco, will pick up litter on the port from 2h30 til 4 p.m. using special eco-friendly trash bags provided by the Société d’Exploitation des Ports.
LONDON TO MONACO 2018
London to Monaco is an annual cycle ride, now in its third year, organised by Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE).
In the last two years, 150 riders from 12 countries have helped to raise over £570,000 for BLUE’s ocean conservation work around the world.
The 2018 edition will run over 7 days, departing from London, crossing 8 countries and finishing at the Palace in Monaco on the eve of the Monaco Yacht Show.
This year’s funds will help support BLUE’s projects on Ascension Island and St Helena in the Atlantic, a network of effective marine protected areas in the Mediterranean, its parent project in Lyme Bay, situated on UK’s Jurassic coast and the Beyond Plastic Med initiative with Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, an initiative to tackle plastic pollution in the Mediterranean.
“Oceans are more than ever at the heart of our common future. The London to Monaco Cycle Ride is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness on the necessity to protect our fragile oceans.”

BLUE would like to welcome riders from Monaco and the S. France to join them on the last day of the ride from Albenga to Monaco. The 114 kilometre stunning coastal route incorporates parts of the famous Milan-San Remo route, incorporating the Porggio climb before arriving for a Royal welcome by Prince Albert at his Palace.
