About Me


Well where to start?  A few vital statistics perhaps …

My name is Tracey Read, I’m an Aussie living in Hong Kong for the last 11 years.

In June 2012 I was part of the Algalita/5Gyres research expedition sailing across the pacific ocean to study plastic marine pollution in ‘The Great Pacific Garbage Patch’.

On my return to HK I set up www.plasticfreeseas.org which now has an enthusiastic team working on solutions, raising awareness and organising action campaigns to combat HK’s contribution to the global issues of plastic pollution.

So grab a coffee, sit back, relax and read on to learn about plastic pollution from plastic pellet spills to plastic sushi grass … it’s all here and more!

    • Thanks John & Adrienne, that just made me get tears in my eyes 🙂 Can’t believe I am leaving in the morning. I’m really excited (and a little bit nervous!). Will keep you updated as often as I can. x x

  2. Hello there! Just wondering if I can use your image of the five plastic ducks to accompany an article I am writing for the University of Waikato’s student union magazine. Cheers.

    • Thanks Valerie.
      Sure, that is fine – thank you for asking. Can you send me a link if possible, I would be interested to read your article. If you could credit the photo to Plastic Free Seas that would be great.
      Best regards,
