Award winning film – The Peloton Against Plastic is a bicycle ride that aims to share the stories of people combating the plastic pollution problem around the globe. The Peloton’s first trip took place in 2018 and travelled from Hanoi to Bangkok. Paul and Jamie met grassroots groups like Plastic Free Cambodia, Rehash Trash, Clean and Green Vietnam and Live and Learn Vietnam, and other proactive locals who told us their ideas, thoughts and plans to beat plastic. We interviewed them about projects and generally captured what they had to say. We also did our best to avoid single use plastic which led to some very comical situations and behavioural insights.
