Matt sets sail in ‘bottles’ kayak

A GRAPHIC illustrator has set sail on a 27-mile voyage in the Canary Islands using a kayak made of recycled plastic bottles.

Matt Nichol, of Todmorden, and a crew of international volunteers are travelling from Tenerife to La Gomera in the “Plastic Marathon” to raise awareness of recycling during Climate Change Week.

Matt said: “We have reached a point where we have to consider our future and it is time to take responsibility for our actions.”
