We are kickstarting a #plasticrevolution by building a boat out of recycled plastic and sailing it 5,000kms from Kenya to Cape Town, sharing solutions - changing mindsets along the way. Our oceans are turning into plastic soup. Creatures that live in and around them are being poisoned – over 12 million tonnes of plastic is dumped into oceans every year. Your donation will help turn 60 tonnes of waste into a global message to end single use plastic. Join the journey and be a part of the change. Click HERE to donate
Plastic is incredibly durable, versatile and valuable. But its greatest strengths - combined with a global 'use once & throw away' culture - are causing damage to the environment.
The #Plasticrevolution is creating a movement for change - a mass movement composed of individuals, companies, groups, even governments, all committed to bringing about a world without single-use plastic.
For the past two years we have worked tirelessly to build a 7mt prototype entirely from recycled plastic and we are now ready to build a 20mt dhow that will be able to sail from Lamu to Cape Town!
We are asking for donations of $10 to $50 and if you would like to donate more, then ask your friends, families or coworkers. After all, we all use plastic and we all need to do our bit! Watch the film above for more information...
