Watch as Prince Albert calls on Britain to take lead on fighting menace of plastic waste

By Staff Writer - March 1, 2018

Watch Prince Albert’s speech, starting at the 38-minute mark.

HSH Prince Albert told an influential audience in London on Wednesday, February 28, that the world must take urgent action to combat the “devastating effects” of plastic in the Earth’s oceans.

The Prince was giving the annual lecture at The Grantham Institute, at Imperial College London. At the end of his 28-minute discourse, he quoted Winston Churchill, saying: “What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?”

Known for his relentless efforts to tackle climate change, ocean acidification and pollution, the Prince added,”This question, ‘What is the use of living?’, is a question we should all ask ourselves.”

The lecture was followed by an audience Q&A with the “the green prince”, who warned that the problem of plastic waste in the oceans is now so bad that it is beginning to end up in ‘the foods on our plates’.
