Julie is one of ten Americans selected as a crewmember of eXXpedition: Round the World 2019-2021. eXXpedition is a UK-based, all-female sailing voyage and scientific research mission with a focus on highlighting the devastating impact plastics from land-based activities are having on our planet’s oceans, ecosystems and on human health. Julie has begun a plastic-free journey in her home and daily life and will present some details of the mission of eXXpedition, but also open up a dialogue with attendees about ways to reduce plastics in our daily lives.
