PADI Seeks To Add Dive Against Debris Program Into Global Plastics Treaty

-

PADI announced this week it is seeking to implement its Dive Against Debris program into the Global Plastics Treaty as part of a solution to remove and monitor marine debris, which is currently under consideration in the Treaty.

If included, this means the program would be recognized as an approved methodology for governments to leverage as a solution for monitoring and reporting marine debris.

“PADI is calling upon all Ocean Torchbearers to help create positive ocean change by signing their petition that also tackles the marine debris crisis, holding governments and the plastic production industry accountable by having the Dive Against Debris program included as part of the solution.”

PADI is gunning for 100,000 signatures to get “one step closer” to a plastic-free ocean.
