In connection to World Earth Day last Friday, DFDS announces new collaboration with ReSea Project to fight ocean plastic pollution
DFDS, that has moved goods and people since 1866 has announced its collaboration with ReSea Project to support the fight for an ocean without plastic pollution. Recognizing that the ocean is the heart and lungs of our planet, producing over 50% of the air we breathe and home to an abundance of life and biodiversity, DFDS is committed to help turn the tide by actively removing plastic waste from oceans and rivers via its partnership with ReSea Project.
The partnership is initially launched with a campaign targeted at Norway where passengers have the chance to book a mini cruise to Copenhagen and the full amount for the cruise goes directly to remove plastic from oceans and rivers. To be exact, each cruise sold will stop the equivalent of 625 plastic straws from polluting the ocean.
“DFDS collaborate with ReSea and fully support their aspiration of an ocean free of plastic. A healthy marine environment is a key element in a sustainable world.” - DFDS Group
The partnership is an important step to spread the word about the importance of a healthy ocean and how we can turn the tide on plastic pollution in our oceans with collective action. According to a recent report from Pew Charitable Trust, the current amount of plastic waste flowing into the ocean every year could triple in the next 20 years, unless we take action. The partnership with DFDS is another great achievement to advance our cleanup mission and to put an end to plastic pollution.
DFDS was founded in 1866 and provides ferry and logistics services in Europe. Their 8,000 employees are located on ferries and in offices across 20 countries.
What is Earth Day? Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held on April 22, 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EarthDay.org
