Plastic Pollution

Charles Moore, Captain of an oceanographic research vessel, defines Plastic pollution as the accumulation in the environment of man-made plastic products to the point where they create problems for wildlife and their habitats as well as for human populations. Plastic Pollution impacts all waterways from fresh water lakes and rivers to our world oceans. Here are links to resources which offer information and solutions to diminish or eradicate the damage caused by Plastic Pollution.
