In a world where plastic is king, vehicles pump out air pollutants daily, runoff from land carries pollution to every waterway, and an island of trash floats ominously in the middle of the Pacific, it is hard to imagine how a single person can possibly make a difference. While saving our oceans seems like a daunting task, there are several things every person can do to help. SSI’s Blue Oceans provides the perfect starting point for divers, dive centers, and even non-divers to incorporate ocean conservation methods in their daily lives. As a diver, the importance of doing all you can to protect the underwater world is not only important to you, but for future divers ahead of you. Learn what Blue Oceans is doing to educate training centers and dive enthusiasts on protecting and preserving our ocean home.

A Blue Oceans Center exemplifies the attributes of a business firmly committed to protecting and preserving our ocean home. Training Centers can achieve this status by satisfying the following requirements annually, thus involving their entire staff and customer base in creating a culture of environmental awareness within the store or resort.
In partnership with SSI, Blue Oceans offers a FREE, comprehensive program on ocean conservation. Divers and non-divers alike will learn about four critical topics facing our oceans today: Coral Reefs, Shark Finning, Ocean Plastics, and Marine Protected Areas.

Through the creation of Blue Oceans, SSI continues to strengthen its commitment to the well-being of ourselves, our society, and our oceans. One of SSI’s foundational pillars is to align its corporate activities with having the smallest possible impact on the environment by using its products and programs to inform as many divers and non-divers as possible about relevant environmental topics and initiatives. SSI solidified their environmental commitment by transforming its educational materials from print to digital content worldwide, saving precious resources, and providing customers with consistent, sustainable, and current materials. They even took it a step further by providing a digital certification card to every diver. In addition, for those requesting a physical card, every SSI Certification Card is printed on a 100% biodegradable, environmentally friendly material.
