Ep. 832: Kayaking the Mississippi River in Search of Plastic - Christian Shaw Adventure Sports Podcast

    • Vildmarken

Christian is a waterman, adventurer, and storyteller discovering a path to make an impact in the world at the intersection of passion and purpose. Shaw is a teacher by nature and is passionate about sharing his skills and knowledge while inspiring others to join the movement for a healthier planet through his non-profit, Plastic Tides. 
After realizing the devastating impact that plastic “nurdles” can have on a river system and the a proposed plastic manufacturing facility being built on the banks of the Mississippi River, Christian decided to travel to Louisiana to spend 10 days paddling 150 miles on the Mississippi from the proposed site of Formosa Plastics in St. James Parish to the mouth of the river to replicate the path these plastic nurdles would take. 
The journey was documented and shared in real time through our social media channels which allowed them to foster support for #StopFormosaPlastics.
