Urban Drinking Water Challenge premium
“Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.” As English Poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, states in his poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner first published in 1798.

Doesn’t it go in the blink of an eye? The past 12 months certainly have and the journey I have been on with the entire Turn the Tide on Plastic team has been incredible. At times, the challenges we have faced have seemed insurmountable, but we have been tenacious and reached the climax of the…

Review of Leg 10 – Cardiff to Gothenburg premium
