Protect our Oceans

I am thrilled to announce that DANIELE de WINTER is now official skincare supplier for TAF The Animal Fund - a wonderful environmental charity that works tirelessly to educate people on the importance of reducing plastic waste, protecting whales and dolphins and understanding the surprising importance of these magnificent creatures.

  • Whales are the fertilizers of the ocean and their poo is the main food source for phytoplankton. Plankton is the foundation of the entire marine ecosystem and it needs Whales in order to grow. The more whales in any part of the ocean, the more plankton and the greater the marine biodiversity. We need more whales and more plankton for our marine ecosystem to regenerate and to survive.
  • Besides, amazingly between 70%-85% of the oxygen in our atmosphere is also produced by marine plankton. As plankton needs whale poo to grow, whales are more important for our survival than anyone could have imagined (source: David Attenborough)!
  • At the moment the oceans and the wales that maintain it are however choking with plastic, and we all need to do our bit to reduce plastic waste NOW.


You can do your bit by:

a) using a reusable water bottle and reusable coffee cup and stoutly refusing to buy water in plastic bottles or coffee in disposable cups ;

b) always carrying a couple of hemp or linen shopping bags so you never need to use plastic bags;

c) buying seasonal fruit and vegetables from local markets so you do not buy any produce wrapped in plastic.

d) Religiously picking up any plastic waste you see on the roadside and disposing of it carefully in a plastic recycling bin.

e) Consider writing to your local MP to ask them to read up on the surprisingly enormous importance of whales and then to lobby the Governments of Japan, Norway, Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, the only 5 countries that still kill whales, to ask them to stop.
