Dive Against Debris in Tenerife

Monday, December 14th, 2015

12Dive Dive against Debris 12122015We are very proud to announce that 12Dive, the PADI 5 Star IDC Centre in Tenerife, organized the second Project AWARE Dive against Debris in Tenerife.

After a very successful first Dive against Debris in Tenerife on the 12th of September 2015, the two owners of 12Dive in Tenerife, Mark Vanderhaegen & Alejandro Huitron de Velasco decided to organize, exactly three months later, another successful Beach Clean-up and Project AWARE Dive against Debris.

The event happened on the 12th of December 2015 on the Playa La Caleta in Adeje – Tenerife and was again a very successful happening.

 

Why Beach Clean-up and Dive against Debris?12359847_10153748149759417_5730985214898220300_n

More than six million tons of marine litter is estimated to enter the ocean each year. Once there, our trash accumulates and includes everything from plastic bags, food wrappers and drink bottles to car batteries, fishing nets and industrial waste. Pervasive debris kills wildlife, destroys habitats and threatens our health and economy. Found in even the most remote ocean places, once underwater, debris can remain for generations. Together, we can stop marine debris by taking local action and supporting policy change.
Together we can make a difference – together we can save our oceans, the environment and at the end our beautiful blue planet!

12Dive is a great example how it can be done and how to involve a lot of people in this
movement. Thanks to 12Dive and their commitment to take care of our oceans and of our world – we can make a difference and a better world.

A Plastic Poem from Steve Andrews in 2010:

Plastic packaging and plastic rings,

Plastic bags for more plastic things,

Plastic bottles for the water you drink,

But plastic causes death so stop and think!

Millions of sea birds and turtles painfully die,

After eating plastic that floats on by,

Plastic thrown away and out of reach,

Ends up as plastic sand on a plastic beach,

Plastic sold for consumer cash

Fills our oceans with plastic trash.

Thank you 12Dive in Tenerife to be such a strong leader to fight against pollution in the oceans.

The world needs more like you guys!
