Summer 2018 Highlight – Healthy Seas: Save Your Breath

31 August 2018

To celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8th, 2018, Healthy Seas collaborated with Cousteau Divers and Pierre-Yves Cousteau on a very exciting mission in Santorini, Greece. The Healthy Seas team of expert volunteer divers from Ghost Fishing, supported by Atlantis Dive Center in Oia, recovered a huge ghost net measuring approximately 150 meters. What was even more special about this mission is that it was broadcasted live for educational purposes all over the world! The mission was exclusively sponsored by Italian fabric manufacturer, Carvico.
After the nets were removed from the seabed, they were securely placed into large bags and will be transported for regeneration. They will travel to a cleaning facility and eventually be delivered to Aquafil who will transform and regenerate them into ECONYL® yarn to then be used by Carvico for the production of fabrics for swimwear. And who knows, maybe this time next year you might be wearing one of these swimsuits and vacationing in Santorini!
