Roz Savage, British ocean rower and environmental campaigner, talks about plastics in our oceans, plastic pollution being called a "man-made global catastrophe" in the context of her first-hand experience with the scale of the problem as she rowed, solo, from San Francisco to Hawaii on the first stage of her Pacific Ocean crossing. Meeting up with the two scientists on the Junk craft, they shared dinner and their research with Roz several hundred miles east of Hawaii. Bottom line is we need to use less of it. Each one of us can significantly reduce our use of plastic and make a positive difference in the world. More information about Roz at www.rozsavage.com.

This is a cause Mr. Lack is passionate about as you will hear as he discusses the role of plastic toxins on developing nations; the importance of accepting personal responsibility; the development of solutions to the problems; and recognition of plastic, when properly recycled, as an energy source. Plastic Oceans provides a powerful and effective platform campaigning for, supporting and funding targeted solutions aimed at significantly reducing plastic pollution in the environment.
