The Telegraph outdoor show at Excel, London hosted Oceans 2017 this year which was organised and run by the Whalefest team. Their focus being marine plastics and a journey through the life cycle of single use plastic and the dangers plastic pollution brings to marine life. Our recycled kayak was featured in their mock up shop, along with many other amazing products currently being retailed and developed to utilise the plastic that is being pulled from our oceans.

They event saw over 15 000 people go through its doors over the four days, many of who were children and families that had never come across this issue previously.

We are a group of volunteer Marine Conservationists who refuse to stand by, whilst our seas turn into uninhabitable dumping grounds​.

“The global marine debris problem is one of the greatest threats our planet has ever encountered. Divers are in a unique position to assist in tackling this threat. Industrial practices and legislation need to change, so our fight is a big one. We believe, by working together to raise awareness, that we are in a position to take on what appeared at first to be; the impossible”
