A Sky plastic whale and a powerful MCS message
Our CEO Sandy Luk becomes an #oceanhero by joining Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Jodie Kidd at Sky’s Plastic Whale launch in London. A beautiful whale with an ugly truth.
Eight million tonnes of plastic are polluting the world’s oceans every year. A 10-metre whale made from single-use plastic is on a tour of the UK to highlight the problem.

Did you know?…
To date, our beach cleans have removed 6 million pieces of litter
It’s estimated that one rubbish truck load of plastic litter enters the ocean every minute
Over time, one plastic bottle bobbing along in the ocean can break down in to hundreds of tiny plastic pieces
