Grab a Bag

After finding out what trash was doing to marine life I decided to be the change I wanted to see in the world. I started with small solo cleanup events. Then I decided to start an environmental awareness campaign that I called Straw Patrol. This was in January 2016. In March 2016 I organized my first public coastal cleanup. Since then and with the help of volunteersm more than 1 tone of litter has been removed from our sweet southern Portuguese shores. How could I reach even more people? By going to schools! That's right! In parallel with cleanup events I started to lecture kids on marine pollution. I have already delivered more than 40 talks in schools, festivals, public events... And it all started by grabbing a bag. Do you want to know what else Straw Patrol is doing? Find out more:
