We have something for you. Promise, it won&#39;t take more than <strong>30 seconds</strong>!</p> <p>The Blutopia Tour in figures:</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/552438/At_a_glance-1541162215.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>Our final objective? A<strong> 7-episode web-series </strong>(1 episode per country, you guessed it) to be screened in 50 cities around the world.&nbsp;</p> <p>And to do so, <strong>we&nbsp;need you</strong>! Your missions, should you choose to&nbsp;accept them: talking about us around you, making a donation and choosing a nice gift in return.</p> <p><strong><em>Gifts will be hand-delivered or sent in Metropolitan France only.&nbsp;</em></strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/552491/The_plastic_tide-1541166698.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>More than&nbsp;<strong>350 million&nbsp;tons of plastics</strong> are produced&nbsp;<strong>every year</strong>. It used to be&nbsp;a revolutionary product but it is now invading the ocean and threatening biodiversity. We have been using it for years for its light weight, its durability and its low cost without ever being warned of the consequences it could have. Today, things have changed. Scientific reports are multiplying and figures are alarming.&nbsp;<img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/552495/The_plastic_tide-1541167400.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>This plastic tide is threatening <strong>plant and animal life</strong>.&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/552496/A_threat_for_biodiversity-1541167425.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>The facts are right in front of us and a <strong>feeling of helplessness</strong>&nbsp;can emerge because of the <strong>extent of the problem</strong>.&nbsp;And yet, Ted Siegler, American economist, says rightfully:&nbsp;<em>&quot;This is not a problem for which we don&#39;t know where the solution is.&quot;</em></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/552492/The_new_wave-1541166706.png" width="100%" /></p> <p><a href="http://blutopia.org/en" target="_blank">Blutopia</a> stands for Blue and Utopia: <strong>the utopia of a plastic-free ocean</strong>.</p> <p>Despite alarming figures, we are convinced that this <strong>utopia</strong> is <strong>within reach</strong>. Many entrepreneurs are developing solutions at a local level that could make a significant difference at a bigger scale.</p> <p>Here are<strong> 4 major objectives </strong>targeted by those solutions.<img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/552501/Capture_d_e_cran_2018-11-02_a__15.09.24-1541167825.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>You&#39;re wondering how those solutions look like?
