On A Mission 2020

TOGETHER FOR THE OCEAN

Mission 2020 is a collection of pledges from organizations within the diving community to change their business practices in order to help protect and preserve our oceans for the future.

With a primary focus on single-use plastic, the project sets ambitious short term targets of changes to be made before World Oceans Day 2020.

Mission 2020 was originally conceived by fourth element as a statement of its intentions to eliminate the use of single-use plastic in the packaging of all its products by 2020 and to continue to develop new products (and re-develop its existing products) using recycled materials wherever possible. By inviting other organizations within the dive community to join Mission 2020 and encouraging them to make their own commitments, fourth element hopes to make this a commitment of the global dive community to protect the very thing which we enjoy – the ocean.

Our mission

“We will focus on training divers to a higher level of skill and environmental awareness by providing; opportunities to be involved in beach and dive-site cleanups locally and globally, and access to more sustainable products to our customers through our increased support of companies whose mission aligns with our own.”

So what does this mean for you?  It means with your support we will continue to promote and stock brands who strive to reduce gas emissions, single-use plastics, find sustainable alternatives, dive site cleanups, promote and use solar energy.  The more we talk about it with others the easier the reality will become to find a sustainable way of living, reduce our carbon footprint and extend the life of our beautiful planet!
