#EarthDay with Polar Explorer Ben Saunders

"I'm a really unlikely environmentalist, and certainly from my first hand experience, it is changing really fast."

This #EarthDay, Bremont Co-Founder Giles English, caught up with Polar Explorer and ambassador, Ben Saunders, to talk about what he's learned from previous Arctic adventures whilst pushing himself to his limits.

Watch the full interview.

ABOUT BEN

Ben Saunders is a polar explorer and a record-breaking long-distance skier, with four North Pole expeditions under his belt. He is one of three people in history to ski solo to the North Pole, the youngest to do so by more than ten years, and holds the record for the longest solo Arctic journey by a Briton. Since 2001, Ben has skied more than 2,500km (1,500 miles) in the high Arctic, and most recently completed the longest unsupported polar journey in history when he re-traced the steps of Captain Scott's ill fated Terra Nova expedition. In November 2017, he will set out to make the first solo and unsupported crossing of Antarctica. This west-to-east traverse from Berkner Island to the Ross Ice Shelf via the South Pole and the Shackleton Glacier was planned by Ben’s close friend Lt Col Henry Worsley, who nearly completed the expedition before falling ill and passing away in hospital in Chile in January 2016. The journey remains unfinished.
