This August I will be paddle boarding 260 miles around the Cornish Coast and beyond, from Wembury to Croyde, in order to raise awareness of the marine litter crisis. I’ll be focussing on single use plastics and their detrimental effect on the ocean, in particular plastic bottles, and proposing simple solutions that individuals can effect!
In conjunction with Surfers Against Sewage, we’ll be running beach cleans and events along the way, and inviting you to get involved.
Every year thousands of tonnes of single use plastic items find their way into our oceans where they pollute the water, damaging the health of the oceans which are vital to sustaining our life on the planet, and harm unsuspecting wildlife.
Use the hashtag #paddleagainstplastic, follow me on Twitter @major_cal or @paddlevsplastic or on Facebook Cal Major or Paddle Against Plastic 2016, and show us what you’re doing to help alleviate the problem.
I’m inviting fellow paddlers, whether on a paddle board, surf board, kayak or whatever craft you choose, to join in for legs of the paddle along the way!
If you would like to donate to Surfers Against Sewage, to help continue their dedicated and incredible work in continuing to protect our oceans, beaches and surfing sites, you can use the link below to my JustGiving page.
