#ecofluencer

The Mission

1. Enlighten

While documenting the journey and the insights, together we will be able to share successful approaches with the world, via our social media channels. That way the #ecofluencer will endow the seas with your voice.

2. Network

Across – often political – borders, ideas and committed people will be brought together. The #ecofluencer will enlighten and debate with politicians, NGO`s, managers and dedicated people who want to change the world for the better – all of that from the personal point of view.

3. Influence

Starting in May and working hand in hand with us the #ecofluencer visits projects around the globe who are dedicated to protect the seas and introduce them to our supporters through pictures and videos.

The Casting

Stay tuned!

Follow us here and on social media and find out more about Jenni’s journey:

Our seas are the source of every life. But instead of treating them with respect, we pollute them to a frightening degree. One of the reasons is our consumption. We are aware that we can´t save the world with a small mission – but we are also aware that we are able to enlighten and create an awareness towards more sustainable forms of consumption. We want to give the seas a voice before it is too late.

This waste of fishing gear has to stop. It has enormous negative impact on mammals, birds and fish. By collecting discarded fishing equipment, we prevent discarded nets from going to the ocean.
Øistein Aleksandersen von Nofir
Every year, some 640,000 tonnes of fishing gear are left in our seas and oceans. It is a global problem that requires urgent action.
Veronika Mikos von Healthy Seas
We believe in collaboration, we cannot solve this problem on our own.

Gefühlt sind grüne Stempel in den Supermarktregalen zum neuen Geschäftsmodell geworden. Die wenigsten halten was sie versprechen oder zeigen transparent was sie machen. Es ist unmöglich als Konsument*in hinter jede Fassade zu blicken und täglich die richtige Entscheidung zu treffen. Wir wollen mit dem Ecofluencer Durchblick im meergrünen Dschungel schaffen und über tolle bereits existierende Lösungen berichten.

Die Ozeane sind der Ursprung allen Lebens. Anstatt sie respektvoll zu behandeln, verschmutzen wir sie in einem erschreckendem Ausmaß. Das hat auch mit unserem Konsum zu tun. Wir wissen, dass wir die Welt nicht mit einer kleinen Aktion alleine retten können – Aber wir können aufklären, ein Bewusstsein für nachhaltigere Formen des Konsums zu schaffen. Und wir wollen dem Ozean eine Stimme geben, bevor es zu spät ist.
