Swim Against Plastic is a global campaign and concept, created by Plastic Oceans International, that is designed to raise awareness and knowledge about plastic pollution. Through record-breaking swims, beach cleanups and youth education, we are empowering people to become part of the solution to this global epidemic that is polluting our oceans and other waterways, killing wildlife, and even endangering our own human food chain.
The first Swim took place in March of 2019, on Chile’s Easter Island, where Sarah Ferguson became the first person ever to swim around this iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In November of 2019, we take another world-record swim to yet another iconic location – Mexico’s Rivera Maya.
