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!
