Jordan first encountered the complexity of plastic pollution as a journalist covering a conference on the issue. He then joined the 5 Gyres Institute on an expedition through the North Atlantic Gyre from Bermuda to New York City collecting ocean samples the whole way and finding microplastics in every one. The documentary A Plastic Ocean presents everything he has learned and more, and he is very excited to help spread this important resource and to work with Plastic Oceans Canada to create a wave of change in Quebec and across the country.
Living in Vancouver, Yvonne has a love for the outdoors and desire to protect the vast beauty that surrounds the city that she calls home. She has a passion for wildlife conservation and a determination to spread the word of the damage our oceans face from the overuse of single-use plastics. Having studied Communications, Sustainability and Development at Simon Fraser University, Yvee hopes she can use her knowledge and skills to bring a larger understanding of the importance of waste reduction to her national community.
