Check out this video on how we cut this hawksbill turtle lose from some nasty plastic ropes on the beach on Isla Espiritu Santo in the Las Perlas Islands (Panamá). Our awesome friend Sheddy from Vet Tails Sailing Chuffed did an emergency operation on this poor little fella on her floating vet clinic, her sailboat Chuffed.
One important step in the fight against plastic pollution is to create awareness about the possible solutions. Especially in those areas where people are heavily affected by plastic trash. That`s why we started a crowdfunding in 2021 to outfit eight sailboats with mobile plastic recycling machines. Our Recycling Fleet has now started to demonstrate the potential of small-scale plastic recycling around the globe.
