This film is about several public spirited waste-collection initiatives, both at sea and on land. The starting point is Emmanuel Laurin’s initiative, known as “The Great Sapphire” and combining protection of the environment with physical endurance. For nearly 14 days Laurin swam along 120 km of coast-line, collecting larger pieces of waste to raise public awareness of the critical state of pollution in the Mediterranean. The film also shows the way ecological activism has evolved: blaming others is now a thing of the past, these new whistle-blowers use a proactive and positive approach. They prove to us that, although our societies are collectively responsible for the terrible state of the environment, each of us can and must act every day to improve it.
