How Karen Plianthos is Leading the Fight Against Ocean Pollution

More than 2,000 pounds of marine debris was removed from Bermuda’s waters this summer by ocean activist Karen Plianthos, as part of her annual ‘Cash Bash Trash’ cleanup campaign. The initiative, which was started by Plianthos seven years ago has removed a whopping total of 12,600 pounds of trash from our local marine environment since its inception. And, her efforts have garnered significant philanthropic support through a GoFundMe page, where donations raised from each cleanup benefit local and overseas charities.

Karen Plianthos spoke to The Bermudian Magazine about her unwavering passion to protect our oceans and the success of the fifth wave of Cash Trash Bash.
