We are delighted to be one of the sponsors of a team of rowers taking part in this year’s Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge to raise awareness of plastic waste in the ocean.
Starting in December, theOcean 5 team will row 4,800km from the Canary Islands to Antigua. Rowers will each row about 10 hours a day and the team expects to take about 40 days to complete the journey, coping with wind, waves and storms along the way.
The Ocean 5 hope to raise £250K for the Plastic Soup Foundation, a charity that works to reduce the amount of plastic being dumped in the world’s oceans.
This is an issue close to our hearts – Lankelma’s team includes some keen sailors and we strive to reduce the impact of our work on marine environments. This includes preventing any rubbish getting into the sea; using environmentally-friendly products wherever possible and minimising waste from our drilling and testing operations.
