Unless people change the way they consume and dispose of products, the marine debris problem will continue to get worse. Plastic is one of the main types of ocean trash and hurts the environment, the economy, and health. For example, plastic bags can sink to the seafloor and suffocate coral reefs, a littered beach can mean lost tourism dollars, and people can get sick by eating fish contaminated with plastic particles. By working together, people can design solutions that prevent trash from entering the ocean in the first place. Cities, businesses, communities, homes, schools all over the world and you can all contribute to the ultimate solution: prevention.
