If you dive off the coast of so many beautiful places you’ll already know about the problem of ocean plastic first-hand. Bags, bottles, caps, bits of packaging; all ending up polluting the sea, , covering the seabed and destroying marine life. There’s around 14 million metric tonnes of the stuff floating around and it’s set to triple by 2040. Stack it all up on the beach and the pile would reach hundreds of feet in the air.
OK, so a new watch made of recycled ocean plastic isn’t going to make much of a dent in that pile but it’s a start – and part of a movement that’s gathering pace. So whenever you check the time you can remind yourself you’re looking at 35 re-homed plastic bottles that have ended up doing some good.
