Louise Hardman is a water person, she loves anything to do with it, be it leisure, sport or work.

It was her specialisation in marine turtles and birds while working as a zoologist that eventually led her to cleaning plastic from the world’s largest body of water.

“When I saw a young green turtle back in 1992 die from ingesting plastic, that was the catalyst for me to want to stop plastics going into the ocean,” she said.

“It wasn’t until 2016 when I kick-started the business that finally, I could put it into practice.”
