THE OCEANS ARE OUR FUTURE:
Summer is approaching and what better moment to take some time and reflect on our planet and our oceans? They are essential but we keep mistreating them. Here’s how you can act!
The power of the ocean
The ocean is wonderful, mysterious and essential for our survival. In fact, oceans create 50 percent of the oxygen we breathe! Plus, they cover 70 percent of the planet and house approximately 80 percent of all known life on earth. Unfortunately, they are increasingly being polluted and aquatic life is being threatened. That’s why we must act now. The good news is that brands are starting to act, such as Biotherm who has understood the importance of being respectful of our oceans and has been a leader in by making environmentally conscious choices for several years now. Since 2012, Biotherm has partnered with the NGO , with the goal of restoring the planet’s blue heart through a global network of “Hope Spots” which are special places that are critical to the health of the ocean!
How to act to help protect the ocean
This year, Biotherm is expanding its commitment to preserving and protecting the world’s oceans through our Water Lovers program. In 2020, Biotherm has announced our newest partnership with the NGO to continue our commitment to a more environmental use of water and environmental practices in the production of products.
Biotherm is fully committed to protecting the earth’s oceans through the program. The goal is to have a significant impact on the environment by protecting skin and the oceans in a sustainable way and creating products respectful of aquatic life and of us!
