In honour of International Beat Plastic Pollution Day, June 7th, renowned environmentalist David de Rothschild connects with disability advocate Sinéad Burke.
David, otherwise known as the 'Lost Explorer’ is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the launch of The Plastiki, a 60-foot catamaran he made entirely from 12,500 reclaimed plastic bottles which he sailed across the Pacific. He also a face from Gucci’s new Off The Grid Campaign, a collection created using recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials, including ECONYL®.
Sinéad is a writer, academic, teacher and disability advocate whose work focuses on inclusivity within fashion and design industries. She campaigns for the inclusion of all, particularly those whose voices struggle to be heard.
Recorded remotely from two opposite corners of the globe, listen as they deep dive into the importance of nurturing and cultivating curiosity across all ages, David’s involvement with Gucci Off The Grid Campaign and the benefits of learning as well as unlearning in a world where pushing the boundaries and exploring new ways of thinking must never stop.
