We are a group of volunteer Marine Conservationists who refuse to stand by, whilst our seas turn into uninhabitable dumping grounds

“The global marine debris problem is one of the greatest threats our planet has ever encountered. Divers are in a unique position to assist in tackling this threat. Industrial practices and legislation need to change, so our fight is a big one. We believe, by working together to raise awareness, that we are in a position to take on what appeared at first to be; the impossible”

How Fathoms Free helps recycling

  • Recycling Plastics

    Help collect bottle tops for us, so we can recycle these into UK produced Kayaks and Body boards with Fatyaks (Paddle for Plastics)

  • Recycling Fishing Lead

    Found any old fishing lead? If so, donate it to us and we can recycle it into scuba diving weights.
