What is Dispatches From A Plastic Planet?

It is our film and book project that has been brewing for the last four years. A personal journey through Norway, Iceland, England, Scotland, Ireland and France, combined photographers and surfers across the globe documenting the state of our coastlines. It's a unique angle of surfing and adventure mixed with environmental concerns for our remotest coastlines.

Everyone bangs on about education being the key, but it’s true. We can have deposit return systems, more recycling facilities, circular economies and the like but if every person on the planet isn’t made aware of the issue in the first place, and the fact that we can all as individuals make a difference then […]

Every time you go to the beach, or just a walk in the country, set aside a couple of minutes to pick up some plastic, it’s the most effective and least destructive way to remove it from the environment.

Recycle

Plastic right now is unavoidable, and in some cases essential, but once we’ve finished with it, make sure you recycle it, that way it can be re-used and stop new plastic entering the system.

Spread The Word

Refuse Single Use Plastic
Get Outside More

We all need to get into the environment more, surf, walk on beaches, swim, whatever it is if more of us enjoyed our wild spaces, more of us would love and look after it.
