The Vortex Swim

 

On World Oceans Day Ben Lecomte will jump in the water and make his way from Hawaii to California through The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Following his 2018 expedition and world record attempt to swim across the Pacific Ocean, Ben will now focus his attention on drawing attention to the state of our oceans, in particular, plastic pollution. On World Oceans Day we will launch The Vortex Swim, an online pledge to encourage followers to cut out single-use plastic from their daily lives. We would love to collaborate with World Oceans Day, to help push the campaign on a day so imporant to our expedition.
