Richard Branson speaking at the United Nations on World Oceans Day

 

On World Oceans Day, Richard Branson presented the United Nations with a petition—signed by 1,021,874 people—pleading for the nations of the world to protect 30 percent of the worlds oceans by 2030.

Branson spoke about another goal of his to make the world completely carbon neutral by 2050 as well as the need to combat the ocean plastics issue, noting his jacket, sneakers, and something a bit more private—were all produced with recycled ocean plastics.
