LIKE A BUTT IN THE WATER

Last June 2021, the four swimmers took turns day and night, for a week,  to cover the 380 km that separate Paris and Deauville. The objective of the association 0 Mégot is to raise awareness among French people to adopt a simple gesture : throw their cigarette butt in the trash. 

4 SWIMMERS

After having swum across the Strait of Gibraltar, Lake Geneva, La Gironde and lake Baringo in Kenya, they want to glide on the surface of a river closer to home: the Seine
