Episode InformationMeet Bill Dale, the man who is turning the tide on plastic in The Isle of Man. Shocked by the plastic washing up on it’s shores, blighting it’s beaches and choking its sealife, Bill Dale started to collect 30,000 plastic bottles off the beach, transforming it into a pristine paradise overnight. Impressed by the results, the cleaning bug stuck and soon spread across to thousands of other people on the island. He founded ‘Beach Buddies’, a charity running more than 200 beach cleans a year, which now has more than 15,000 volunteers signed up! This small British Island has shown us what’s possible, and now it’s ‘addictive’ community approach is spreading across nations as a microcosm for success. If they can do it - anyone can!
