Team @StatusRow – 3 ordinary women rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean this December to challenge our everyday use of plastic

Meet some of these amazing women on Sunday 22nd April at The Odyssey screeening of A Plastic Ocean

2018 SuStAinable StAlbans Week

Racing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, team Status Row will row non-stop for over 50 days, in an attempt to become the fastest and second ever female trio to row across the Atlantic. At the mercy of the elements, the team will face a constant battle of sleep deprivation, salt sores and the physical extremes of rowing for 24 hours a day – 2 hours on, 2 hours off.

It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. The team are raising much-needed awareness of the plastic pollution epidemic, and funds for the Marine Conservation Society.

The Marine Conservation Society’s ‘Clean Seas’ programme aims to track the health of our seas, identify, sources of pollution and develop innovative solutions for cleaning it up.

Sustainable Money by Catherine Ross

2018 SuStAinable StAlbans Week

How green is your finance, and does it matter?

Where we save and invest our money has an enormous environmental impact, that most of us don’t even stop to consider.

With most of the choices we make, the impact on the environment is pretty direct … whether we drive or walk, for example, or whether we recycle.  With our money, it’s trickier, but just as important. Do you know what companies your pension fund invests in, and does it matter? Is the degree of climate risk that your money is exposed to at a level you are comfortable with?  How can big companies be encouraged to act environmentally?  How transparent are companies about their environmental standards in the first place?  And if we did want to move our money, what choices are there?

On Tuesday 24th April, we will get insights into important questions like these at Sustainable Money: Climate Risk…
