Plastic Tides

Plastic Tides is passionate about plastic pollution with the ultimate goal to change the mindset about plastics.

Mission


 

We promise to fight plastic pollution on every shore, in every forest, from the cliffs of Yosemite to the jungles of the Congo, from the waters of Manila Bay to the cold expanse of Canada’s Northern Territories. We want every woman, man and child to understand the importance of this issue, but we especially want the outdoor industry and those that call nature their playground to be the change. The outdoor industry has a strong connection with our mother earth and it’s time we as outdoor athletes truly respect her.

 

About Celine


 

Céline is an all-around water-woman, trained as a windsurfing instructor at the prestigious Glénans sailing school in France. Cured from an immune deficiency through herbalism at the age of ten, Céline was mesmerized by the power of plants early on. Determined to uncover the best way to feed the world sustainably, alongside her degrees at Cornell and Oxford Universities, Céline volunteered on countless farms to better understand how to harness the power of nature through biomimicry. She developed a passion for perennial crops and agroforestry systems due to their ability to provide food and an array of other ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration— of paramount importance to remain within our ‘planetary boundaries’. Digging deeper into food issues, Céline soon became aware of the issue of plastic pollution and waste in general. This leads her to utilizing her food systems knowledge to address plastic pollution via Plastic Tides. She’s the one planting fruit trees at events, foraging wild herbs and food during expeditions and educating people about permaculture.
