Bravo for Oceans: Help us make the world a cleaner place!

Participate in the Second Edition of Bravo for Oceans!

Bravo for Oceans 2024

 

How does Bravo for Oceans work?

Here at BravoCoupons we have decided to offer a small but vital contribution towards the safeguarding of our planet, thanks to an initiative that came about in 2022 which we called Bravo for Oceans. Last year we pledged to finance the removal of at least 1,000 kg of plastic and other marine waste by local fishermen across various parts of the world. In 2024, we decided to bring back this important project, with the same target firmly in mind!

All this is possible thanks to Ogyre, a fledgling international company that aims to remove marine waste in Italy, Indonesia and Brazil, by collaborating with local fishing communities.

By working with an international partner who shares our vision, we are committed to achieving our ambitious goal and have pledged to finance, together with Ogyre, the removal of 1,000 kgs of marine garbage from the seas of Indonesia, Brazil and Italy. Over the next 12 months, fishermen will recover plastic from the seas in their local areas, their work supported by Ogyre. In this way, Ogyre not only safeguards the wonders of the oceans across the planet but also provides a new economic income to communities that are hit worse by the depletion of marine ecosystems. We see this global and highly experienced company as the perfect partner to help us meet the objective we've set ourselves.

Other Events that Help Protect Our Planet:

World Cleanup Day 

The global initiative World Cleanup Day was founded in 2018 by the Estonian NGO Let's Do It! World. Since then the initiative has been observed every year during the third weekend of September.

It all started in 2008, in Estonia, thanks to the initiative of entrepreneur Rainer Nõlvak, who managed to bring together 4% of the population with the goal of cleaning up 10,000 tons of waste in just a few hours. Within a short time, the initiative also caught on in Latvia, Lithuania, France, Italy, Portugal, and many other countries. This then led to the official start of the first World Cleanup Day in 2018.

Since 2008 the purpose of the initiative has remained the same: to bring attention to the dangers of abandoned solid waste by organizing clean-ups that bring together millions of volunteers all over the world.

World Environment Day

Held annually on June 5th, World Environment Day has been celebrated globally since 1974. Led by the United Nations, the initiative has been used to raise public awareness of the importance of supporting environmental causes and underlining how our actions deeply impact the natural world.

This year, the event will focus particularly on the growing problem of plastic pollution. Every year, in fact, over 400 million tons of plastic are produced, over half of that amount being made up of disposable plastic. It is estimated that roughly 19 to 23 million tons of plastic end up in our rivers, lakes, seas and oceans, causing damage (often irreversible) to our natural marine ecosystems.

Today, it is more important than ever to emphasize the importance of respect for the environment and the necessity to preserve our ecosystems.

World Oceans Day

Not only do ocean waters cover over 70% of the world’s surface, which contain a staggering 80% of all global biodiversity found on Earth, but they are also responsible for producing more than 50% of the oxygen present in our atmosphere. It is clear, therefore, that the health and well-being of our planet, and our very survival, depend on the natural processes of our oceans being protected.

World Oceans Day was first proposed, as a way of raising public awareness of the importance of safeguarding our seas. Held every year on June 8, the event aims to celebrate the beauty and diversity of our ocean waters and bring to the fore the important role that public institutions, companies and individuals play in its protection.

Earth Day

The name Earth Day was first coined in 1969 by prominent peace activist of the day John McConnell. During that year’s UNESCO Conference, McConnell proposed the creation of an International day to honour and safeguard our planet.

Earth Day has been celebrated internationally on April 22, ever since. Its main objective is to underline the importance of balance within the Natural World and the need for environmental sustainability. Earth Day also aims to put the spotlight on the numerous problems that threaten our planet daily, including pollution, the over-exploitation of the Earth’s non-renewable resources and the destruction of vital ecosystems.
