I have worked as a scuba diving instructor for over 10 years and always had a passion for the ocean and protecting it. For the last two years working with the GREEN INNOVATION GROUP we have mapped over 100 ocean tech startups and SMEs; I have learnt a lot. Last June, we also had the pleasure of hosting the 7 Seas Summit in Lisbon, Portugal and two of the startups that participated: Plastic Fischer GmbH and AguaPlus are game changers.

There is no doubt that changing behaviours and lifestyles to act in a more sustainable way is crucial. However, only 9% of the plastic waste that has ever been generated is recycled and, whilst a more responsible consumption pattern is needed, companies need to embrace cutting out waste completely, to create a completely closed loop system.
