Water Lovers since 2012

Since 2012, Water Lovers is Biotherm’s program aims to create a movement to educate about plastic pollution and trigger a positive change in people’s behavior towards oceans.

Understanding the environmental impact of climate change and particularly the threat of plastic pollution, Biotherm has worked to apply an environmental approach to product development. From the formula to the packaging of Biotherm products, especially the WaterLover suncare, Biotherm aims to limit its product’s environmental impact.

Our actions for the next 10 years will determine the state of the ocean for the next 10 000 years.

BIOTHERM x TARA

By funding the Tara Ocean Foundation, the Water Lovers program supports the research to understand how to minimize the product impact on the ocean waters and helps to raise awareness on environmental issue.
This non-profit organization collaborates with scientific institutions to study the impact of climate and ecological change on the ocean. Tara Ocean Foundation sails a 36-meter aluminum schooner called Tara to travel the world and collect ocean data. The boat has completed 11 expeditions, providing scientists with the information they need to predict and anticipate the impact of climate change.

In 2020, the expedition will be “South Atlantic mission”. (to be launched in October 2020, still dedicated on micro plastic issue and plankton analysis  – upstream the rivers in Brazil, Chili, Argentina, South Africa, Senegal.)
