The Mumbai Diaries: #OceanForLife

    It’s time for a new adventure and this time, we’re heading to Mumbai in India for our new Spring-Summer 2019 Feature. Read more!

    8 million tons of plastic enter our oceans every year, making plastic pollution a major problem in our society. However, it is finally starting to get the attention it deserves. We need to take action!

    But first, we need to understand the origin of the problem

    The Ocean For Life project has become a real adventure, with the main aim to discover first-hand the reality of plastic invading our oceans.

    There’s no denying that richer countries need to address their use of plastic, but this is not the only root of the plastic ocean problem: the mismanagement of waste in countries, such as India, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka, accounts for 70% of all plastic pollution ending up in our oceans.

     We decided to travel to Mumbai, India, with an eclectic and international team to understand the problem first-hand.

    Our four inspirational Campaign Ambassadors, including top models Alena Blohm and Simon Nessman, adventurer Gotzon Mantuliz and actor Michel Biel, describe their discoveries in four short interconnected documentaries spread over four chapters.

    We started our journey in the Dharavi neighbourhood (made famous by the movie “Slumdog Millionaire”), then visited the landfill site at Uttan and finally the Mumbai coast to understand how plastic reaches the oceans. The fascinating people we met along the way made us realise that there is hope, and that, as with all problems, there are solutions.

    The problem of plastic and our oceans has a global dimension, so only a global action can provide a solution.

    Join us on this incredible adventure! It’s time to work together and do something for our planet! #OceanForLife

    We continued our journey to Canada’s Pacific Coast, Vargas Island Park in Clayoquot Sound, where we filmed our Chapter 2 of the new FW18 campaign, with a visit to a new ecological project. A great chance to reconnect with nature and understand how we can all work together to help protect the environment.
