Kristine's eXXpedition Video Diary

Wondering what life is like on board the eXXpedition ocean research sailing voyage? TOMRA’s Kristine M. Berg joined the 2018 eXXpedition voyage to research marine plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, armed with her circular economy experience… and her GoPro. Here is the video diary of her journey.

eXXpedition Round The World departs tomorrow from Plymouth, kicking off the two-year, all-female sailing voyage that seeks to research and raise awareness of ocean plastic pollution. In 2019, TOMRA will join as science advisor and gold sponsor for the epic voyage crossing four of the world’s ocean trash gyres, with four women from TOMRA joining 300 other women from across the world as crew members.

Last year marked TOMRA’s first involvement with eXXpedtion, supporting the voyage as title sponsor, with our circular economy advisor Kristine M. Berg rolling up her sleeves as a member of the crew. The voyage sailed from Honolulu to Vancouver, crossing the North Pacific Gyre – otherwise known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the densest accumulation zone for ocean plastics on the planet.

From departure nerves, to research trawls, to the isolation of the North Pacific… as we countdown to this week’s departure of eXXpedition Round the World 2019-2021, check out Kristine’s video capturing life on board the 2018 eXXpedition journey.
