PODCAST: About Blue Carbon and Protecting Our Shallows

Clean Sailors podcast, About Blue Carbon and Protecting Our Shallows


Our emission of greenhouse gases, namely significant amounts of Co2 over several hundred years, is altering our climate. We often turn to trees and replanting vegetation, Green Carbon, as the opportunity to recapture carbon from our atmosphere, but coastal ecosystems are exceptionally apt at carbon capture and storage, too - almost more effective than the Green Carbon counterpart. In this episode we speak with Lucy McMahon, Marine and Coastal Scientist and ocean optimist, about Blue Carbon; what it means, how effective our Blue ecosystems are at moderating our planetary climate, and why we need to protect them.

About our Clean Sailors podcast

Hosted by Clean Sailors founder, Holly, we talk all about sea, sailing and keeping it clean, exploring some of the areas in which sailing and our wider marine industry can become that bit cleaner. 

Through conversations with experts, innovators, inventors and activists, all working towards the health of our seas, we showcase the people and projects changing the way things are done.

We believe great ideas should be shared so our podcast is free to appear on. If you've got a project, idea or topic you think we should be discussing - get in touch!

Our podcast is supported by Henri-Lloyd, a brand and legacy known for championing and supporting sailors, adventurers and pioneers who push boundaries.
