by Gael Pawson
Gael Pawson's thoughts on how sailors can reduce plastic waste The first step in minimising our impact on the planet is to reduce our consumption. Even if what we buy is fully recyclable, energy needs to be used to reuse it, and so one of the biggest differences we can make is simply to buy less.
