That is one of the most exciting initiatives I've heard in a ling time. I love the sea and it breaks my heart we are destroying our water with the plastic and other pollution. The more if us are aware of the issue the more we can do to stop it. Well done to everyone involved and good luck to one very lucky person who will go on the adventure of the lifetime doing something very important!

Currently studying environmental science and would love to join you on this expedition. If I do not get the lucky winning place I will still be happy money is going towards a worthwhile cause. Good luck and be safe.

Great idea- good luck to the winner. This sounds like a fantastic expedition, and I can't wait to hear about it... Eagerly following you on social media!

Katherine, I am so happy to see you got your project off the ground! I'm really sad I wasn't able to take you up on your generous offer of a trip last year due to illness, but I hope to join you in the future! Your efforts have really reinvigorated my desire to do something about the plastic situation in Iceland :)

This is an absolutely brilliant idea, I hope it’s an idea that catches on! It’s a great opportunity for marine scientists, science students and just anyone who is interested in this area, whilst also supporting the environment. Good luck to all!

Great initiative! I am a scientist myself and like the idea of combining science with an actual contribution to clean and improve the environment. My friend is already registered for the excursion and if I could get a chance to join her on that mission that would be amazing!

Great expedition, having been lucky enough sail for a year with my husband and kids in the tropics, I'd love to have the chance to see the higher latitudes and give something back to the ocean.

This issue is so important, plastic is choking the oceans and its inhabitants. We need to fix what we as a species have caused. And if I received an amazing once in. A lifetime adventure while doing it that would be an amazing bonus.

This sounds like a dream and an adventure come true if I win. But either way I love what you are doing, it's a great cause and needs more people like you! :)

Shareen Sanders 5th March 2019

Hey! I really love this idea! I’m actually looking for internships to participate in as part of my ecology masters degree and I think this would be an excellent starting point for my career in marine conservation. So please pick me, you won’t regret it!

As a keen water sports enthusiast, zoologist and conservationist, projects like these need to lead the way in showing the world the appalling state we are leaving our planet in

Time for a second pledge! With the greatest passion for the sea, sailing and winning the plastic pollution battle, I want nothing more than to be on this yacht and join the team on board!

Louise Evans 5th March 2019

This mission is so incredibly important and topical this year, it would be amazing to be a part or trying to help even a little!!

Piper Bishop 5th March 2019

As a marine biologist, this is a trip of a lifetime and a huge goal of mine! 🤞 But I'm happy to support such a wonderful cause win or lose!
