The last five years especially here at the plastic project have been about creating a resource of images from across the planet, that is accessible to any school, college or individual that would like them. As well as shooting thousands of images ourselves we have also drawn in some of the best surf and adventure photographers from around the world. The idea being that at any given time one of us is on a remote stretch of coastline that no one else visits, we are beyond where science goes, and beyond where anyone but surf photographers and adventurers go.
That puts us in a unique position to document the extent of pollution, mainly plastic, but we go beyond that, across the planet. We have created a resource that has now been used and seen by over one million students. Now we want to go bigger, we want everyone on the planet to see what we are doing and create a constantly evolving resource which monitors the health of our coastlines, and therefor our oceans. This is where you come in.
Up until now I’ve used my network of professional contacts, but we want to broaden our reach, we want to get everyone involved, we can all be photographic activists. So what we want is people to submit shots, that you are happy for us to use within our resource. We want shots like these, rubbish in the coastal environment, it’s critical that it is not beach cleans, we want to show what coastlines are really like, and we want to cover the whole planet.

If this isn’t you, but would still like to help, we are currently raising the last bits of funding for 2019, we rub a very lean ship here, no one is paid, everything is done for free, and this year our key funding is with our book. It’s a 204 page hard or soft backed coffee table style book, and is a cold water adventure through England, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Iceland and France, mostly focussing on the surf and adventure with an environmental message.
