Congratulations to Jenni from Germany for becoming the 1st #ecofluencer- welcome to our Team!
A person with the ability to influence environmentally friendly behavior by promoting it on social media.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We believe in collaboration, we cannot solve this problem on our own.
