Passion points for BPP and wider sustainability issues:
- Being an athlete is inherently selfish and I’ve always felt a need to give back for the opportunities and experiences I’ve had. The ocean has always been my saviour so when I first heard about the Big Plastic Pledge it felt like it was meant to be.
- As a child my parents were always picking up litter on the beach and instilling in me the value of looking after something that can’t look after itself. This has grown into a big passion of mine.
Top Tip for athlete advocates:
- I want to see people take on the 30wear Whenever you buy an item will you wear it 30 times minimum and will the item make it to 30 wears? We need to stop fast fashion as the knock-on effects are having a hugely negative impact on our oceans.
