Chris Hemsworth helps protect the world’s oceans from marine pollution

Today, on International Recycling Day, Corona and Parley for the Oceans announced their partnership in the movement to end marine plastic pollution – one of the biggest threats to human health and the survival of the most important ecosystem; the world’s oceans.

Launching globally in six key regions including Australia, Corona x Parley is a long-term partnership committing to the preservation of 100 islands by 2020.

Joining the cause are several well-known ambassadors including Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, who has always been passionate about protecting our shores. Recently returning from the Maldives, where he participated in a clean-up expedition alongside Parley Ocean School, the actor witnessed the negative impact of plastic pollution underwater, on uninhabited islands and local communities.

“I’ve spent a large part of my life in and around the ocean, it’s where a lot of my happiest memories came from,” Chris said. “If I had anxieties or worries, I’d head to the ocean and it was always the place where I could reset and be 100% present.

“My experience in the Maldives made it obvious how our short-term use of plastic has a long-term damaging effect on our oceans. I’m thrilled to be a part of this program, because I want to inspire people to find a solution and protect the world’s oceans so future generations can enjoy them like I do.”
