George comes from a sailing background and saw the increase of waste in the water especially plastic while on the water, so had to do something about it. This led him to setting up 100 Tons of Plastic. He wanted to set a challenge that hasn’t been done before while educating and rasing awareness of the problem.
Ollie comes from a fishing family so has been working around, or on boats all his life. He is a talented artist and designer and had a big interest in ocean conservation before joining 100 Tons of Plastic. His new ideas and vision on where the campaign could go made him the perfect match to join George.
