Ecotourism: combining tourism and ecological awareness. It is a global trend that has won over millions of tourists, who choose the hotel to spend their vacation only after first considering how environmentally friendly it is.
Beach and underwater cleanups with All For Blue
Seminars, underwater and beach cleanups with All For Blue combine action with fun and are practical proof that the hotel really cares about the environment.
- The seminar on the protection of the marine ecosystem lasts about 60-90 minutes.
- Participants learn what they can do to contribute to the rescue of the marine ecosystem, such as how to avoid the use of plastics.
- Together we wear the special reusable gloves and clean the beach.
- The underwater clean up is done by divers of All For Blue and certified divers can also participate.
- We weigh the garbage, separate recycling materials by type (ex: plastic, glass, metal, wood) and register them in a global database.
- Video recording by a team of professionals.
- Edited video for posting on the hotel website and social media and viewing at reception or inside the guest rooms.
- Coverage by a professional photographer.
- Promotion on social media and on the All For Blue website.
- Diploma for the participants (Ocean Conservation Seminar-Project Aware).
- Volunteer diploma (online) for the participants.
- Award of Achievement Diploma for your business.
- Recording of the event and the objects collected in a global database (with reference to the company).
The speakers of the seminar are experts in their field with lots of love for the ocean, members of the organisation, marine biologists and professional divers.

3. The involvement of employees in clean ups helps to strengthen team bonding. They get to know each other better, learn their strengths and weaknesses, communicate better and actually learn to collaborate more effectively in their daily tasks. Each team seeks to be the winner, picking up the most trash, thus strengthening the commitment to achieve goals. It has proven to be one of the best ways to increase productivity in a business.
The plastics collected from our actions will “return” to the local community in the form of waste bins, as a souvenir, but also as proof that any product that inevitably reaches the “end of its useful life” can be reused and become sustainable.
What others have said about our organisation:
“We felt that we gave back to the place we came for vacation. We put our ecological consciousness into practice. I also took part in the underwater clean up and took out a bag of trash. Unforgettable experience!”
“The seminar impressed us, we saw that the protection of the marine ecosystem is in the hands of our generation. On the beach, I got to know my teammates much better. We collected the biggest amount of garbage”.
“I personally met many employees, the tourists had a good time, wrote good reviews on the internet, we got a certificate that shows that we are a really eco-friendly hotel and now, we will go even further by replacing the biodegradable straws we had in the hotel with reusable metal stainless steel straw ”.
