“Every breath you take and every drop of water you drink comes from the sea.The ocean generates 50% of the oxygen we breathe, it regulates the climate and is an essential source of food, energy and life.
For years, a huge quantity of metals, plastic and pesticides have been pouring into the ocean compromising its flora and fauna. If we continue this way, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fishes.
The good news is that is not too late to take actions and changes can be reached starting by small daily gestures and individual choices. North Sails has its roots in the sea and decided to act for it, by raising awareness on the issue of plastic pollution in the ocean. We are only at the beginning of this challenging, yet stimulating, journey.
These are just little steps but, as you know, every great sea crossing must be dealt wave after wave.
Go Beyond Plastic”.
