Dive and Sea Tenerife are awarded the PADI Green Star Award.
PADI Green Star Award Program
Did you fall in love with the aquatic realm the first time you went underwater?
If you’re like most divers, your first experience meeting and greeting the denizens of the deep most likely left a lasting impression – and sparked a deep sense of caring about the health of our ocean planet.
On a more practical level, the commitment of divers to environmental conservation helps preserve dive sites around the world — so divers like you can return to favourite sites year after year.
The PADI organization recently introduced a new program – the PADI Green Star Award (TM) – that assists PADI Dive Centres in identifying their environmental footprint and offers them a range of actions they can take to lessen any negative effects.
About the Award
The award is given only to those Dive Centres who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to conserving the underwater environment that so many of us may often take for granted.
PADI Dive Centres and Resorts who have earned the Green Star Award demonstrate a dedication to conservation across a wide range of business functions, including (but not limited to):
“Environmentally friendly” transportation practices
Optimized waste management
Use of sustainable materials
Paperless interactions with their PADI Regional Headquarters
Donation to Project AWARE
Once again we at Dive and Sea Tenerife are leading the way as the ONLY PADI Dive Centre with the Green Star Award in the whole of the Canary Islands.
Whilst others boast about completing a large number of courses we are committed to the environment and the oceans, as the only Dive Centre with both the 100% Project AWARE and PADI Green Star Award.
We hope other Dive Centres follow our lead in putting something back into the ocean we all love so much!
