It’s less than 150 days to go until Team Peninsula –Toby Kendall, Will Drew & Sam Morris – row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic!

With an abundance of accomplished challenges, marathons and adventures under their feet, Team Peninsula have chosen to tackle the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge dubbed ‘The World’s Toughest Row’ – which is no small feat. To put it in perspective, more people have climbed Mount Everest. At some points, the closest human may well be aboard the International space station and the nearest land directly below them.

Inspired by their endless quest for adventure and a desire to increase awareness of the devastating impact single-use plastic has on our Ocean, Team Peninsula has partnered with Ocean Generation.

At Ocean Generation, we are incredibly honoured that Team Peninsula have chosen to support and work with us to help educate individuals, communities, businesses and schools around plastic use and its effect on the natural world. Not only this, but they will be raising vital funds for Ocean conservation!

"With amazing groups like Team Peninsula, we are able to raise awareness around our mission and spread our voice further. Toby, Sam and Will are embracing an incredible challenge and we are honoured they have chosen Ocean Generation to join them on this adventure. We can't thank these three lads enough! We encourage everyone to support them and share their narrative."

Kendra Blumsky, Partnerships Executive

2.7 million tonnes of plastic enter the Ocean every year, with 422 million tonnes of plastic still being produced every year. The change needs to happen now. Shifting the mind-sets of plastic and plastic-use is key, educating people is crucial.

As we are the first generation to truly understand Ocean issues, we are the last generation who can stop them.

As the training and calorie-burning continues, we are in awe of the challenge and commitment Team Peninsula has ahead! They have completed all the mandatory qualifying training and will now be looking to boost donations and conduct several key events to support the cause, through education, roadshows,and events.
