Jess, Caroline, and Susan are three women who have set themselves an amazing goal: they plan to row across the Atlantic Ocean this coming December, in support of the Marine Conservation Society. The MCS runs something called the “Clean Seas” program, Live Kindly reports, and they're the leading charity in the United Kingdom for promoting clean oceans.

The Clean Seas program is part of the MCS initiative to identify pollutants that are having a damaging effect on marine life, and work to discover their sources so they can be stopped. For example, MCS campaigned for a plastic bag charge, and were successful. They also advocated for labeling microbeads in the bath products that contaminate the water system after being washed down bathroom drains.
