Paddling Against the Tide

The sea has always floated Sian Syke’s boat – or, in her case, paddle board! It’s her love of paddle boarding that brought Sian up close to the plastic tides that litter our coasts, even on, seemingly, pristine Anglesey. Circumnavigating her island to highlight the plastic plague, Sian singlehandedly led Anglesey into achieving ‘Single Use Plastic Free Community Status’, the first UK county to do so. To make a lasting difference though, Sian now needs to take her campaign to the ‘unconverted’… For Anglesey to be an example to Wales and the world, as Sian aspires, she must get everyone on board. Inspired by Sian’s sustainable vision, we have produced a short taster film with two aims: to get television interest and help Sian raise public awareness of her campaign.
