Go-Eco - Eco Friendly Diving on Samui
Eco-Friendly dive practices are something we take very seriously at 100 Degrees East; we are passionate about the environment that gives us our livelihoods and such pleasure, which is why the company became Koh Samui’s first PADI ‘Go-Eco Dive Center’ in 2006. Our previous projects have included beach clean ups and reef clean operations, as well as playing an integral role in the ‘BioRock’ project, which saw five artificial reef sites set up around the island in association with the Global Reef Alliance. In addition we are a patron of the Project Aware Foundation which was established in 1992 and is the dive industry's leading non-profit organization - “committed to conserving the underwater environment through education, advocacy and action”.
We are also a member of Green Fins Project in Thailand which advocates environmentally safe diving practices and produces invaluable marketing material in both English and Thai to promote marine conservation and reef awareness.
100 Degrees East is also proud to be a founding member of GIDOA (Green Island Diver Operators’ Association) – a group formed by like minded dive schools on Koh Samui to work together on environmental projects for the benefit of the island.
