Clean ocean sailing
Clean Ocean Sailing is a volunteering project created with the aim of cleaning our coasts and oceans sustainably under sail, raising awareness about ocean plastics. They are restoring a 110-year old boat and use it to sail to inaccessible shores on the Isles of Scilly to sort, record, reuse and recycle plastics.
Plastic Patrol was set up in 2016 and have already made great strides to remove plastic waste from over 60 countries around the world. They combine community action with disruptive technology to develop sustainable alternatives and gather data for scientific research into waste that escapes to nature.
