Now our eXXpedition North Pacific voyage is complete, we finally have some time to reflect. Not only did 24 amazing women go sailing, but we also collected data and samples for partner scientists all over the world. We held outreach events in Vancouver and Victoria, and clean ups in Hawaii, Vancouver and on the remote Broken Islands in British Columbia. Our crew are now returning to their families, work and communities with a plan of how to apply their ‘superpowers’ to plastic pollution in our oceans and beyond.
We have also received some amazing press, promoting our work looking at plastics and toxics in the ocean, and creating a network of ocean changemakers.
Below are just five pieces of the fantastic coverage we have received. These are in addition to brilliant TV coverage on Sky, ITV and BBC Breakfast, amongst other channels.
Thank you to all of the publications and channels that have shared the news of our North Pacific journey so far. Support from the media and influencers is so important in sharing the impact of ocean plastic, and encouraging long-term systemic change.
