We are currently going through a global environmental crisis; 8 million tonnes of plastic waste find their way into the ocean each year (Dr Jenna Jambeck) and only 9% of plastic waste being recycled globally. But thankfully there are people working together to change this reality.
I was given the opportunity to be part of that challenge by being the first Costa Rican to join eXXpedition’s first Round the World 2019-2021 voyage!
I will represent Costa Rica under our country brand, my voyage is an essential COSTA RICA event because it aligns with the integral values of Costa Rica’s country brand: excellence, sustainability, innovation, social progress and Costa Rican origin.
Supporters and Sponsors:
eXXpedition’s vision is to empower a network of multidisciplinary female leaders to use their own unique skill sets to shift the way we feel, think and act towards the oceans, helping to solve the plastic pollution crisis.
