The Plastic Soup Surfer

Plastic Soup Surfer

 

Merijn Tinga recently rode a foil board made out of plastic bottles he’d collected across the North Sea from Holland to England. The journey took him nine hours and he did it to highlight a petition he’s presenting to the Dutch Government which calls for a 40% deposit fee on plastic bottles to reduce waste and marine litter!
