Seiko Prospex and PADI have introduced that they’re serving to with the biggest underwater cleanup occasion on the earth.
The occasion will happen on September 24, 2022, in Sesimbra, Portugal. The cleanup occasion is organized by the marine conservation charity Oceanum Liberandum and goals to get 700 divers to take part within the occasion throughout Mission AWARE week. All of the marine particles collected from the occasion can be entered into PADI’s Dive Towards Particles database.
Commenting on the occasion, CSR Specialist for PADI Worldwide Emma Daffurn said:
“Our database is the world’s largest in terms of capturing seafloor debris data, which has already helped drive two pioneering scientific papers being used to create new waste management policies…More than 250 million tons of plastic are estimated to make its way into our ocean by 2025 and the environmental damage caused by plastic debris alone is estimated at $13 billion US a year. This world record attempt further highlights the important role divers play in reporting, removing and advocating to stop marine debris at its source.. We’re thrilled to have the chance to work with Seiko in supporting the largest underwater cleanup event so that we can mobilize Ocean Torchbearers to take action to protect what they love, capture more essential data for policy changes, and continue the wave of momentum in creating positive ocean change.”
Whereas Miguel Rodrigues, the Gross sales & Advertising and marketing Director for Seiko Prospex, said:
“Helping to raise awareness and take an active role in environmental conservation has become one of Seiko Prospex’s missions…We seek, whenever possible, to support events that have ocean conservation at their core, and we are very honored to sponsor the world’s largest underwater cleanup. We are proud to contribute to a more sustainable future where humans are an integral part of nature.”
