What on earth are we going to do about single-use plastic that is destroying our planet and wildlife in our oceans?
Every day, there are terrible stories about what plastic is doing to our planet, our oceans and our own health. However, there are a few people who are dedicating their lives to saving the planet for the next generation. A 51-year-old Frenchman, Ben Lecomte, has embarked on a 9,000km swim, from Tokyo to San Francisco, to draw attention to a collection of plastic waste in the ocean between California and Hawaii. He will battle giant waves, jellyfish and shark-infested waters to raise awareness of how we are polluting our oceans.
