In October more than 300 women will join a round-the-world sailing expedition to highlight the devastating impact of plastic pollution in the oceans and conduct scientific research into the escalating crisis. The two-year, 38,000 nautical mile trip being organized by eXXpedition, a non-profit focusing on marine pollution, will travel to the Arctic, the Galapagos Islands, the South Pacific islands, and as well as other coastal areas where plastic pollution gathers.
