My health is so much improved after finding this forum and following the low carb high fat lifestyle and I gained so much energy and zest for life I decided I wanted to give something back. So this summer I am joining an expedition on a research sailing yacht to measure plastic pollution in our oceans, trawling the entire British coastline over the course of a month. We will be sending samples to Plymouth University and to the University of Georgia where they will be analysing them to identify the sources, and types of plastic pollutants and the toxic chemicals they attract. The plastic in our environment breaks up in to ever smaller pieces which attracts toxics and then enters the food chain and eventually us and have been implicated in human health problems. Anyone who would like to support this vital research and our outreach events in the ports we will visit around Britain in August and September this year can read about our crowdfunder here goo.gl/T53WtN The participants have paid for their own passage and all the ships costs themselves so all the money raised will go towards awareness raising, science workshops, kids art from plastic waste, campaigns against disposable plastic and for the reintroduction of water fountains everywhere. We have some great rewards in return for any pledges and even if you can't give anything we'd really appreciate people sharing the crowdfunder on social media and within their social networks so we can help our oceans and marine wildlife. Many thanks. Apologies if this is not allowed on here - it is a charitable venture with huge implications for human health.
