Swimming across the Atlantic Ocean. Facing impervious and tiring flows. With the help of fins only. In just under two months. Is this the plot of the latest Mission Impossible? No. This is the titanic feat that Fabien Leroux is preparing to face in 2020. The French diver undertakes this "project of a lifetime" to raise awareness of the protection of oceans, at a time when a wave of plastic is threatening them. Do you know that in the Pacific Ocean there is a plastic island as big as the Iberian Peninsula? And that, if we don't change our habits, in 2050, in the oceans will there be more plastic than fish?
Fabien told us his story and the reasons why he is preparing to face this adventure: he fascinated us so much that we decided to sponsor his challenge. Those who, like you and us, take daily care of a small underwater world are even more sensitive to the environmental issue. For this reason, we will make a small contribution to this adventure that will focus the spotlight on one of the main problems of our time: plastic and its threatening invasion of nature.
We are ready to support Fabien's adventure from Cape Verde to Barbados. Follow him with us.
