Welcome to Paddle Against Plastic!
Plastic pollution is destroying our oceans. We know this now. Paddle Against Plastic hopes to inspire and empower positive change, and bring hope and pride in being part of the solution.
It also hopes to reconnect you to our incredible ocean environment, nurture an understanding of its importance, and a desire to protect it.
Set up in 2016 by Cal Major, Paddle Against Plastic uses epic stand up paddle boarding adventures to capture peoples’ imagination, highlight the issue of plastic pollution so close to home, and to promote positive change by proposing simple solutions that we can all be proud and excited to be a part of.
There is often a lot of negativity and doom and gloom surrounding environmentalism, so much so that it can completely paralyse us into wondering what on Earth we could do to make a difference to such a huge issue.
Paddle Against Plastic aims to disband this overwhelm, and replace it with positive solutions. However small your actions, just adding your voice to the millions of other people around the planet who care about this issue will help to put pressure on the companies and governments that are able to make even bigger change. There is a lot to be done, but this can only be done collaboratively, and caring about the problem is the first step to being part of the solution.
