South African endurance swimmer Sarah Ferguson recently talked about the devastating effects of plastic in the ocean, especially in SA.

Breathe Conservation and its founder, Sarah Ferguson, did the sardine run near the eastern coast of South Africa last week when they saw the devastating effects of plastic pollution in the ocean.

Sarah told The South African that the intention was to do the sardine run when they happened to come across a line of plastic pollution.

According to Sarah, Hole in the Wall in the eastern coast of Southern Africa is supposed to be one of the most pristine parts of South Africa, untouched by humans and yet there are plastic packets lining fences and 2-litre bottles lining the shoreline more than the eye can see.
