Emily Penn is an ocean advocate and skipper who's spent the last decade exploring plastic pollution from the tropics to the Arctic. She's on a mission to inspire and facilitate a community of changemakers through her project eXXpedition and by training athletes and celebrities to be impactful advocates on ocean issues.
In this podcast episode, Emily sheds light on why people in developed countries can't just look at the primary sources of ocean plastic pollution stemming from 'developing countries' and feel that this absolves us of responsibility; the known and unknown health impacts of chronic exposure to plastic bits and their associated chemicals; and more.
