Briggette is our most senior trustee with considerable administration experience, having worked for American Express, the National Health Service and other local authorities in Sussex. She enjoys a long-term marriage, is a mother of two and a grandmother to three children. Her main worry about ocean plastic is that it will build up to the point where all marine life is threatened, leading to food shortages and potential ecological disaster.
Unless we act positively to educate people to dispose of single use plastic responsibly, help manufacturers with packaging re-design and develop ways of recovering plastic from our oceans, it is likely that there will be more plastic than fish in the sea in the next 30 years.
We must work together to persuade our politicians to think and act to change from coal and oil fuels to renewables for a cleaner sustainable future for our children. These are the wishes of the people and growing number of responsible corporations who value our planet and the limited resources that need to be used wisely.
PLASTIC BOTTLES - All the usual culprits. We spotted these household names on the beach at Exceat near Seaford Head on the south coast of England. Companies who sell goods in plastic containers could offset their plastic footprints by contributing to our ocean research. Copyright © photographs, 31 July 2018.
