This International Womens Day we celebrated the ladies behind eXXpedition.
An amazing group of women headed up by Emily Penn on a mission to fully understand the impact our plastic pollution is having on our oceans and our own bodies.
Emily Penn splits her time between running eXXpedition and developing upstream solutions to the ocean plastic issue with corporate partners, scientists and government bodies. An experienced public speaker, Emily gives talks around the world at conferences, universities and global companies about her adventures and issues relating to our oceans, human mindset and future society.
You can find more information on Emily’s projects at www.emilypenn.co.uk.
CONNECTED BY A PASSION TO PROTECT OUR SHARED OCEAN, IT WILL ENABLE 300 WOMEN TO GO TO SEA AS HANDS-ON CREW AND EXPERIENCE FIRST HAND THE CHALLENGES WE FACE FROM SINGLE-USE PLASTICS, WHILE CONTRIBUTING TO CUTTING-EDGE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND SOLUTIONS-BASED THINKING.
These Eco-Warriors are true inspiration to us all - doing their bit to find solutions to our plastic epidemic.
