Meet the Founder:
Kristal Ambrose also known as ‘Kristal Ocean’ is an environmental scientist studying marine debris and plastic pollution in The Bahamas. After sailing across the Pacific Ocean in 2012 to study the Western Garbage Patch, Kristal was inspired to return home to The Bahamas to spark a plastic pollution revolution. For the past two and a half years she has been working diligently on plastic pollution research and education in her country. In 2013, she began The Plastic Beach Project; a citizen science based initiative that studies plastic concentrations on beaches in The Bahamas. Her passion for the issue led her to develop and launch The Bahamas Plastic Movement. Since embarking on her journey to change with The Bahamas Plastic Movement, she has brought awareness of the issue to thousands locally and globally.Most recently she was awarded the 2014 Environmental Youth Leader Award from The Government of The Bahamas for her efforts in the field of plastic pollution. Currently she is continuing her education at Gannon University in Erie, PA where she is studying Environmental Science.
