Our Mission

There’s no silver bullet solution to the ocean plastic crisis. 

eXXpedition – led by ocean advocate and skipper Emily Penn – was founded in 2014 to shift the way people feel, think and act by building a global network of multidisciplinary women who can contribute to world-class scientific studies, explore solutions, and use their unique skill sets to tackle the problem from all angles.


254 Ambassadors from 40 Nationalities

We’re on a mission to tackle plastic pollution by activating the biggest resource on our planet: people. A multidisciplinary, multinational approach to tackling ocean plastic is at the heart of eXXpedition. 

The multidisciplinary women who have taken part in our voyages hail from all corners of the world, with a range of different skills to help solve marine plastic pollution.


Following each voyage our crew are fully charged and empowered with the knowledge, tools and belief to make a difference. See their impact here!
