Christine Figgener is a marine conservation biologist and ocean advocate who is passionate about conserving marine turtles, fighting plastic pollution, and empowering women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). These passions are united by her vision to create positive change in the world by eliminating unnecessary plastic. Christine’s role as the Footprint Foundation director of science and education is to increase awareness and knowledge about how each one of us can help eliminate plastic waste from the environment and food chain by making easy, everyday changes.

A movement of people willing to pledge to QUIT plastic. We track how many people take the pledge, what items they quit, the carbon emissions saved, and the pounds of plastic eliminated.
