Paddle Against Plastic and the epic journey of Cal Major
by Etienne Stott/British Canoeing

Etienne Stott travels to Manchester to meet Cal Major, who’s been so influential in the fight against sewage and plastic in our seas.  Cal talks about her epic world record journey when she decided to take her SUP and paddle nearly 1000 miles from Lands’ End to John o’Groats.  

Cal talks about the physical and mental resilience needed on this two month challenge and her reflection on the environmental issues she encountered.  She believe’s there’s a massive problem to solve.

Cal decided to go inland on her journey and it helped her to see the connection between what’s going on there and the marine litter crisis at sea.

There’s a great discussion, some fascinating observations and heartening news about the successes of the campaigns against plastic and sewage.
