When you’re trying to save the world you can be forgiven for sounding a little tired.
And Boyan Slat, the Dutch wunderkind that exploded onto the environmental stage in 2012 with a TEDx talk on ocean plastic pollution, sounds exhausted.
Speaking over the phone from his base in the Netherlands he gives the impression he’s just got out of bed when, in reality, he sorely needs to get into it.
