How big is the problem of plastics in the ocean and what could we do to solve it? In these series Hanna Verboom sets sails with By The Ocean We Unite to find out more about this problem.

We documented the experiences of Hanna and the crewmembers (scientists, researchers and journalists) in the series 'Plastic Sailors'. The sersies is a follow-up on the campaign #STOPMETPLASTIC from National Geographic.

As an ambasador Hanna did serveral interviews with Dutch orginisations who fight agains plastic pollution. She also spoke to Karl Beerenfenger, expeditionleader of By The Ocean We Unite. He invited her to go on expedition to Denmark. She said yes, and these series came out as an result!
