Newsletter n° 14 - December 2019


The end of the year holidays are fast approaching and in a few weeks we will be wrapping our loved ones with gifts! What if this year, we also plan to please the planet by trying eco-responsible alternatives?

For example, by offering handmade products, a unique and original gift, or by starting a zero waste approach with solid shampoos or boxes, etc. And if your gift requires wrapping, try the Japanese Furoshiki technique with a nice fabric or container that you can reuse. So much paper that will not end up in the trash!

Like the hummingbird, participate on your own scale and reduce your impact on the environment by adopting one of these actions!

Do not you know the legend of the hummingbird?

Explained by Frédéric Silvert, Technical Director of the SeaCleaners, discover this Amerindian legend that will invite you to your part for the protection of the planet… because every action counts!

Plastic pollution figures

In order to raise awareness and mobilize more and more strength around the Manta project, we will regularly offer you unpublished infographics to help you discover what lies behind plastic pollution and its impact on the planet.

​Discover today the immense damage caused by the plastic on the beaches during the summer holidays.
