The Plastic Problem

Theres a 10m deep soup poisoning our oceans, it stretches from 500 nautical miles off the Californian coast, across the norther Pacific, past Hawaii and almost as far as Japan.

At Master Divers we take the plastic waste problem very seriously and try to minimize our contribution, particularly single use plastic. We explain our philosophy to all guests to our dive centre and have contributed information to South East Asia Backpacker Magazine to help educate travelers too.  We have identified 10 ways that travelers and locals alike can help minimize their impact and actively share these points and encourage others to join the cause too.

Our dislike of single use plastic inspired a short movie.  Anyone who has cried with laughter after seeing our recent interpretation of Queens Bohemian Rhapsody might be expecting another funny, but this one is a little more serious and has the reef singing its own version of Gloria Gaynors, I Will Survive!  We hope it inspires others to share this message and take some responsibility for their immediate environment too.

If you agree with our point of view, then the first way you can help is by spreading the word, please click the LIKE BUTTON below.  If you want to see how you can help, then check out these top 10 tips for minimizing plastic waste.
