OUR PHILOSOPHY and MISSION ECO BLUE FRIENDLY

Aquamarine follows the eco-sustainable philosophy in all the activities it offers, spreading an ECO-FRIENDLY lifestyle for the sea and the surrounding environment. 

Aquamarine opposes the tendency that often imposes a certain adaptability, which clashes with the need to exploit everything, immediately and in excessive quantities, which is the cause of the deterioration of our world.

Even though scientific progress in the ecological field is enormous, changing one's habits in this sense is not always easy.

The encounter with the SEA  arouses one of the greatest emotions that man can feel in the presence of nature, the environment that most inspires respect and water, which from an unconscious point of view recalls the maternal womb and our birth

Living ECO BLUE FRIENDLY means taking all the measures needed to pollute less, to avoid waste which not only saves us money, but also reduces our quantity of "pollution” that we inevitably pour onto the planet.
