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.
