Sustainability Education Programme Manager, Volvo Ocean Race
Following July’s Sky Ocean Rescue documentary that saw the Turn the Tide on Plastic team collect comprehensive data and embark on research on ocean pollution during the Volvo Ocean Race, Volvo and the Rappacioli family have invited Lucy Hunt into their home to get under the skin of how they live and explain the many ways that they can reduce the amount of single-use plastics in their everyday lives. As a marine biologist and creator of a bespoke education programme based on ocean health and plastic pollution, Lucy is the perfect person to open their eyes to the truth about single-use plastics and ocean sustainability.

Alchemy of leather

In fact, many consider it to be the finest automotive leather in the world. Well, why else would it be in your Volvo?
