The first time we talked with people of Earthrise team and explained them what the Healthy Seas initiative is, they were overwhelmed by the amount of information, names, subjects involved and activities going on behind this project, but they loved it. It took time to discover every piece of this journey from marine waste to wear, but during the three days we spent together, they did a great job explaining in a simple and clear way what Healthy Seas does and why our activities are important for our seas.

We all hope you enjoy this reportage and will want to jump on board with us or help us in our daily diving activities starting this month!

Earthrise created also a nice infographic on Nylon regeneration. Something to share around with the video.

The video will be aired on Al Jazeera international this week (18th May) following this time schedule (GMT): Monday 22:30, Tuesday 09:30, Wednesday 03:30, Thursday 16:30 and Friday 05:30.
