Riley Elliott, aka the Shark Man, is not afraid of much. But there is one thing that scares him: single-use plastic bags.

“You think sharks are dangerous? Well, they’re not really, not compared to these critters.”

The last thing he wants is our environment and oceans getting trashed by plastic waste.

“So come on Kiwis, let’s say “Bags Not” to single-use plastic bags.”

Sounds good to us Riley… but is it safe to go in the water?
