On Tuesday, at our event for #plasticfreejuly,we’ll be hearing from the Phil Somerville from @eatlessplastic
A native of New Zealand, and a life based in Los Angeles for the last 30 years, has led Phil to be citizen of the planet. Between ages 17 and 21, he visited over 30 countries.
Now based in NZ with his wife and two seaworthy children, he has dedicated his life to philanthropy, a connection to people and the Earth. For Phil, protecting our planet for future generations isn't just a desire---it's a living truth.
A vast range of experiences across different industries have taken him from starting an empowerment program for disadvantaged kids, to being part of the Hollywood dream. His film credits include:
Zero Dark Thirty, Iron Man, Captain Phillips, and Mission Impossible.
Phil's true passion is the ocean. He is a Master Diver, holding his
United States Coast Guard Captain's Ticket. His motivation to spread sustainability awareness and ocean conservation are unwavering. This, coupled with belief and commitment to the cause, has led him to sail his 54ft sailboat 'TODAY', across the Pacific to collect data with the 5 Gyres Trawl Share program.
As Captain of the mission, it's one of the biggest responsibilities of his life and he couldn't be prouder to give back to the Earth and all it provides.
To hear more from him join us as we 'talk rubbish’. Link in bio 🌏❤️🙏
