For a while as a kid Ellen Mcarther was my hero. But I could never understand why she gave up the sailing and got so keen on eco matters… that is until I started to sail further afield.
To try and put it in a tangible way..I’ve caught more plastic bags then I have fish, I’ve not been on a single delivery where I havent seen a crisp packet float past and every dingy ride I manage to salvage something from the water.
But that’s just whats on the surface. The real danger is when it breaks down into tiny particles and creates a plastic soup which ocean life mistakes for food. The ocean is slowly becoming swamped with it. So if you have been enjoying reading about my travels… I ask you to take 30 minutes out of your day and watch this film. It’s very easy watching and features music by Jack Johnson 🙂
Plastic never disappears… it’s time to rethink how we use it!
