DUOTONE CLEAN BEACH DAY

Duotone Clean beach day

The ocean is our playground, our race track and relaxation zone, our source of inspiration and thrill. We love it. Not only for the endless opportunities it offers in regard to kiting but also for the power, strength, and beauty it exudes. Without it kiteboarding wouldn’t be the same. Yet this essential part of our lives is seriously threatened. Huge amounts of garbage, especially plastic, are endangering our oceans and the wildlife living in it. By now, plastic makes up for most of the marine litter worldwide. Experts estimate it at millions of tons. And those numbers are growing.  

 

According to the UN more than 8 million tons of plastic leak into the ocean each year – equal to dumping a garbage truck of plastic every minute. It is so much that you can see it from outer space. In some places the garbage builds up to “islands of trash” which cover huge areas of the sea, some of them bigger than the entire country of Germany. If we continue dumping items such as plastic bottles, bags, and cups after a single use at our current rate, estimates suggest that by 2050 oceans will carry more plastic than fish.
