Organisations collabrate to bring message of water conservation to BOOT 2016

Gewässerschutz boot 2016

Trash in the ocean affects everyone. This is the message that some organisations intend to publicise at the upcoming BOOT in Dusseldorf, from 23 to 31 January 2016.

Under the motto “Together for water conservation”, a broad alliance of organisations have come together for the second time to inform visitors about the need to protect our oceans. These associations include Messe Dusseldorf, German Canoe Association, German Rowing Federation, German Sailing Association, Association of German Sport Divers (VDST), Team “Kunststoff” (plastic) and PlasticsEurope Germany eV.

Stationed at a booth in Hall 14, their aim is to inform the public about the causes of waste in the ocean and to encourage everyone to do their part to improve the situation. Whatever the type of waste, people should be mindful and not carelessly discard it in the environment. The same goes for plastics, which should be recycled at the end of their life cycle. With recycling and the orderly disposal of waste, less trash ends up in the environment and thus valuable resources are saved.

More information on the initiative "Together for water protection" can be found in this PDF flyer.
