It is generally well known, that we earthlings have a huge problem in our hands. Approximately 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in to the ocean every year killing birds, marine life and poisoning the earths water resources. Since most of the plastic is non-biodegradable it will slowly break into micro plastics that find their way back to our plates and even drinking water. If we continue this way there will be more plastic than fish in our Oceans by 2050.

Jumping into a totally different culture for five months all by myself seemed both exciting and challenging. I have backpacked around Asia but never ended up to Koh Tao. After I got my Open Water certification in 2014, I knew that I was hooked on diving. So, I got a crazy idea to apply for Koh Tao Divers to do my internship and here I am!
