The world has a plastic problem: we’re running out of the natural resources to make it, and plastic we have already is often poorly disposed of, with potentially catastrophic consequences for our environment. As an example, the UN Environment Programme estimates that 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the world’s oceans every year. Plastic waste poses a huge threat to the world’s finely balanced ecosystem. The fight against this has only just begun: there is so much more we need to do. Oris is committed to bringing change for the better, particularly with regard to our environment. In recent years, the independent Swiss watchmaker has partnered with a number of non-profit organisations with a vision to conserve the Earth’s oceans. This year, on September 14-15, Oris will continue its stated mission to behave in a socially and ecologically responsible way and to promote sustainability and sustainable causes by taking part in World Clean-Up Day 2018. This global event sees people all over the world gathering to clear man-made waste from nature. Oris is also committed to recycling plastic before it ends up in nature. To coincide with its participation in World Clean-Up Day 2018, Oris is introducing a Divers Sixty-Five on a strap made of recycled plastic (pages 8 and 14). These are further examples of Oris’s philosophy: ‘Go Your Own Way’. As an independent Swiss watch company, Oris is free to make its own decisions and to do what it believes is right – World Clean-Up Day 2018 is a clear expression of that philosophy. Everyone’s invited – together, we can make a difference.
