Dougie Poynter from McFly joined Mario this morning not for a tune ,but for a environmental chat!

It turns out that he is not just a great musician – he’s also a pretty serious environmental campaigner. He joined Mario this morning to  talk about his new book called Plastic Sucks,  he is is a lifelong supporter of environmental causes and a key player in the campaign to ban microbeads in the UK, Dougie is always on the hunt for ways to reduce and replace plastic.

This campaigning book, his first solo authored project, draws on his own experiences in the fight against plastic waste – the problems he's encountered and the solutions he's found. It covers the history of plastic, introduces us to some key campaigners and eco entrepreneurs and is full of top tips and infographics.

Dougie also shared his memories of winning "I`m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" , he volunteered to change the toilet waste every day as he thought it might get him out of the harder tasks! Dougie! Take any other task but that! Fair play to him - he certainly isn't afraid of helping out the environment no matter what the challenge!
