Helen chats to the CEO of Plastic Oceans International, Julie Andersen, in Malibu

As Britain prepares to host the United Nation’s Climate Change Conference COP 26, the CEO of NGO Plastic Oceans International talks to Helen about the catastrophic situation the world is in and the serious threat to our ecosystems.

More than 400 million tonnes of plastic are produced every year. 10 million tonnes end up in our oceans with only 10 per cent recycled. Julie explains if we don’t change our sight line, it will have catastrophic results for the planet. She shares innovative stories of positive projects happening in communities around the globe and stresses the massive difference we can all make collectively towards ending plastic pollution.
