The Prince of Wales viewed the @SkyOceanRescue 'Plasticus' whale today, which is made up of a quarter of a ton of plastic to represent the amount that enters our oceans every second.

Plasticus has just returned home to London after a nationwide tour to highlight the problem with single-use plastic.
Did you know The Prince has worked for many years to promote sustainability and has highlighted the issue of plastic in the oceans?
HRH said in 2017: “I find it sobering to think that almost all the plastic ever produced is still here somewhere on the planet in one form or another.”
