Every single year, 8 million tons of plastic enter our oceans. Change starts with one person. It starts with one straw. It starts with one drop. “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” Emily is the founder and owner of the sustainable travel blog “Airplanes and Avocados,” which discusses sustainable travel options and marine conservation issues. Her academic focus is within environmental policy and governance, working towards better regulation of our oceans – specifically the high seas – to combat pollution, overfishing, and other illegal practices putting our oceans at risk.
When Emily is not studying, she spends her time traveling around the globe, especially ecotourism destinations, and capturing plastic pollution in coastal communities.
