Marine Pollution

The ocean covers almost three quarters of our planet. Populations in coastal regions are growing and placing increasing pressure on coastal and marine ecosystems. Marine pollution of many kinds threatens the health of the ocean and its living resources. While the past decades have seen efforts at the local, national, and international levels to address the problems of marine pollution, more needs to be done.

    Yet the world adds 80 million more mouths to feed, clothe, house and provide energy and water for every year… this is unsustainable…

  4. If you cannot recycle 100% of your waste product. You're still apart of the problem including myself. The corporations need to start with recyclable packaging. That can lower our waste output and begin to assist in an Eco-recovery. The planet would have to be on board. This will not happen as the corporations want to make as much money with minimal overhead.
