  • - I was the first person

  • to paddleboard the length of England,

  • and then I was the first female

  • to paddleboard across the English Channel.

  • (light splashing)

  • Being on the water helps me restore my health,

  • and now I feel like I want to give something back

  • and restore the health of the waterways

  • because they need it.

  • Paddleboarding was my way to tackle the plastic pollution.

  • (upbeat music)

  • (gentle lapping)

  • My name's Lizzie Carr.

  • I'm an adventurer, environmentalist and paddleboarder.

  • I started paddleboarding

  • purely as a way of getting fit again

  • after I was diagnosed with cancer.

  • The first time I put my paddle in the water,

  • it was like meditation.

  • It was this really calming, serene experience,

  • and then all of a sudden, I'm on the water,

  • and I'm seeing plastic everywhere.

  • On all the journeys I've done,

  • bottles are by far the most common thing I've found.

  • I think I've probably picked up thousands of these.

  • You see how big and how immediate

  • and close the problem is.

  • Eighty percent of marine debris starts inland,

  • so effectively from our water ways,

  • before it flows out into the oceans.

  • For me, it was always about

  • using adventure and paddleboarding

  • as a way to get people thinking

  • and talking about plastic pollution.

  • I decided to paddleboard the length of England

  • from its most southerly point

  • to its most northerly point

  • through the connected waterways network.

  • I started in Godalming in Surrey,

  • and I paddled 400 miles to Kendal in Lake District.

  • It took 22 days to complete,

  • and I photographed and logged

  • every single piece of plastic

  • that I encountered on that route.

  • I took over 3,000 photographs,

  • thousands and thousands of pieces.

  • What I logged was a crazy amount,

  • and that's not even a fraction of it.

  • My next adventure was paddleboarding from England

  • to France, so it was about 24 miles

  • across on the English Channel

  • and take water samples every fourth mile

  • to analyze micro-plastics.

  • And if you look closely,

  • you can find these tiny pieces of micro-plastics

  • where it looks like styrofoam has just broken down;

  • and obviously that never goes away,

  • and that's when it gets really dangerous

  • because that's when marine life confuses this for food

  • and they eat it.

  • You can see it all over.

  • This Saturday, we're going out in North London,

  • and we're doing a big clean up there with the community.

  • Welcome to Plastic Patrol.

  • And then we'll just get out on the water

  • and spend a couple of hours just paddling around

  • and looking for litter and putting it in the buckets

  • that we have at the front of the boards.

  • Over the last few years of Plastic Patrol,

  • we've collected 189 ton bags of plastic waste

  • and removed them from our water ways;

  • and I look at every single one like a victory.

  • You're seeing the very best

  • and the very worst of humanity.

  • The worst is represented by all of the plastic

  • and the sheer volume of plastic

  • that you're there clearing up,

  • and the best is the people trying to fix that.

  • I feel more proud of that

  • than I do of paddleboarding a distance.

- I was the first person
