On Sunday, September 20, 2015 in Torbole sul Garda the third edition of the event Leave Your Finstep was held. AMBIENTE ACQUA, PADI IDC 5 star dive centre organized it in partnership with the city of Torbole on Garda Lake.
It was a day dedicated to the ecological cleaning of the seabed.
The event has counted the participation of about 60 people, including more than 50 divers who dived to engage actively in the collection of waste.
Our new Divemasters organised and ran our big clean up event at Seaview Marina.
The morning weather was cold and once the hail started we wondered if our divers would show up - but of course they did. They figured it would be warmer underwater than staying on the surface.
What an awesome effort! Between 5 divers; in 90 minutes, we pulled out 20 cans, 16 straws, 1 knife, 1 spear shaft, 1 fishing rod and reel, 2 knife scabbards, 5 plastic cups, 7lbs of lead, 5 thongs, 1 bong, 1 syringe, 142 assorted glass bottles, 3 bottle fragments, 25 assorted plastic bags, 1/2 a rugby jersey, partial engine/motor block approx 4km fishing line, a pair of sunglasses, assorted hooks and fishing lures. It filled up an entire wheelie bin!
