Emily Stevenson, Co-Founder at Beach Guardian 

Emily has been picking up plastics from beaches in England for over half her life. She is a marine biologist whose efforts to clean the ocean have been recognized by BBC and awarded by The Diana Award. Once she found out about "the invisible pollution", microplastics, she went on a journey to stop that too. Starting at her own home.
