My name is Charlotte Hesterman, a Dutchie who loves the ocean and its creatures. I started diving in 2004 and became a dive instructor in 2008. After working in Thailand, the Philippines, Bonaire, the Maldives, Fiji and traveling to many more stunning places it became very clear to me what the impact of (plastic) pollution is having on the ecosystem. Therefore 2 years ago I started my own plastic recycling business in Bonaire, together with a very good friend. Next to that I’m establishing an NGO called ‘Life Below Water’ to create more awareness among people wherever they live by creating events, workshops, beach-clean-ups, documentaries and more.
