Paddle Against Plastic is an epic stand up paddle boarding adventure in August 2016.
Cal will be paddling 260 miles around the entire Cornish coast and beyond, from Wembury to Croyde. She’ll be stopping at Boardmasters on the way and beach cleans around the coast, with Surfers Against Sewage.
The paddle is being used as a vehicle with which to raise awareness of the amount of plastic ending up in our oceans and on our beaches, but moreover demonstrating how easy it is to use less plastic in our own lives, and to help alleviate the problem. Since plastic water bottles are one of the most common pieces of marine litter found on beaches, and one of the easiest to live without, Cal is challenging the public to go a summer without buying plastic water bottles, and instead using refillable alternatives instead.
The aim is to educate, inspire, and enable, through media and social media outlets and community events along the way.
