2015: people, planet and plastic!

On the TV:

2015 saw me presenting and producing half an hour of daily, prime time TV for Made in Bristol. From sewage to strictly, here are some of my highlights!

 

On the banks of the River Avon:

refill bristolIn Spring 2015, I formed City to Sea, a collective of local organisations, practitioners, scientists, marine biologists & campaigners addressing the problem of marine plastic at a city level. Our objectives are to reduce the amount of plastic litter flowing from Bristol into the Severn Estuary, by phasing out single-use plastics and creating a replicable model that can be shared with other coastal and river based cities. Have a look at the website for more info on our campaigns, Refill Bristol and Switch the Stick!

ITV West Country, BBC Radio Bristol and Made in Bristol TV have been supporting and following the journey.

 

On a raft made of plastic:

On World Oceans Day I launched the music video to my song, Burden, a year to the day after the crowdfunder that made it all happen. 15% of iTunes downloads and 100% of Bandcamp downloads go to Surfers Against Sewage Marine Litter Team. Hugest of thanks to everyone who backed it, especially Bristol 2015, The Wave, Bristol Water, Wessex Water, At Bristol, Bristol Aquarium, Reflex Marine and Bristol Port for their support!

 

Here’s to 2016! Thanks for your interest and please subscribe to my youtube channel for regular updates, interviews, plastic-free tips and more!

 

Presenter, producer, poet and plastic-free promoter!

Thanks to all who supported my Seas Initiative campaign last summer! The film is due for release 08/06/15 – that’s World Oceans Day – and one year since I launched the successful crowdfunder. You can find me every day on Made in Bristol TV, presenting and producing The Source, Bristol’s only daily ‘what’s on’ TV show.

And often down on the riverbanks of the Avon, raising awareness about marine plastic. More on that coming soon.

This clip is from the high tide, late February 2015 …

And this one, from the week after …

Please join me at the Surfers Against Sewage BIG SPRING BEACH CLEAN 2015 this month. Event details for Bristol here.
