Enter our Instagram video competition – win a special edition backpack
made from recycled plastic bottles


Dreaming of summer? Everyone loves sun, sand and sea. Maybe you’re active and enjoy snorkelling, swimming or sailing. Or maybe you just like to relax and sunbathe on the beach. Whether we’re on it, in it or by it, we want to enjoy the sea, the coast, nature and wildlife without it being spoiled by pollution, waste and over development.

So can we enjoy the sea without harming the environment? Can we also protect nature and the coastal wildlife? What can we do to protect the Mediterranean and make tourism more sustainable?

Make a creative one-minute video for Instagram.

We want to hear what you think. It could about your ideas on protecting the coast and marine wildlife from waste and pollution. It could be about the places around the Mediterranean Sea which you love! Or it could be about the activities which get you close to the sea and to nature. We will be judging on the best ideas, the best stories and the most creative videos.

How to enter

  1. Make a short one minute video about how to enjoy the ocean in a more sustainable way
  2. Post on your Instagram account
  3. Use #myOceanLove and other tags about oceans and sustainable living
  4. Set your account to public so we can see the video!
  5. Tag your friends and tell them to enter too!
  6. Follow @respon_sea_ble (we’re also on Twitter and Facebook)


Six Re-Kanken rucksacks from Fjall Raven worth €89.95 each are available as prizes, made from recycled plastic bottles.  These are great for using on an outdoor holiday, while also being sustainable and protecting the environment!
