The Plastic Tides Team visited Bermuda as they undertake a circumnavigation of the island in order to raise awareness of the #BeatTheBeadBermuda campaign alongside BEST.

The Plastic Tides team visited in June 2014 and returned with their flights being sponsored by MultiStrat Re, a Bermuda specialty reinsurer focused on launching and growing asset manager sponsored reinsurance companies.

On May 5, the team set off on another non-stop circumnavigation to collect samples for micro-bead research with the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST].
