eXXpedition in the Press

Putting ocean plastic pollution in the spotlight

We play an important role in raising awareness of the crisis of ocean plastic pollution. Our pioneering voyages generate a lot of media interest and this helps to highlight the devastating impact of single-use plastic while shaping conversations around solutions to the problem.

In the first half of 2018, our top 35 pieces of media coverage had a reach of over 26 million people. Over the course of that year alone we had over 430 media reports published.

Here are some of our favourite reports in the past year.

If you’d like to contact us about a media opportunity or interview, please email media@exxpedition.com.
