Blue Oceans by Mares and SSIBlue Oceans by Mares and SSI

Mares supports Blue Oceans from SSI

As divers, we love and respect the underwater world, including everything in it. This is a fundamental and core element of our passion; but the seas and oceans ask us to do more. The time has come to act.

To safeguard what we love most, we must do our part to preserve all bodies of water, especially for future generations. This is our commitment, and why we are part of the Blue Oceans project, founded by our friends at SSI.

In addition to the core message of protecting the oceans and reducing plastic, SSI has created a free program aimed at raising awareness about how divers can actively help to protect the underwater environment.

By creating informed divers, highlighting how we can all contribute to this cause, even in small ways in our day-to-day lives, we believe we can really make a difference!

The movement needs to cover all aspects of the diving world; from equipment to training to creating certified, conscientious divers. If we all work together, we can make this happen!

What changes has Mares made?

Over the past three years, Mares has been on a mission to reduce the use of unnecessary plastic in our company in an effort to better care for the planet we call home.

The initial steps have been taken, with non-plastic alternatives gradually being introduced throughout all our lines, hoping in the near future to replace plastic completely. We also share our message with employees, collaborators and suppliers.

Here are some examples of the steps we have been taking towards our goal…
