Ocean trash ranks as one of the most serious pollution problems of our time. Much more than an eyesore, trash in the water and on the shore affects the health of people, wildlife and economies. For example, trash in the water:

  • injures swimmers and beachgoers;
  • harms wildlife that eats it or get trapped in its mess;
  • drives away tourists—and their wallets; and
  • ensnares boat propellers, a costly navigation hazard.

The good news is we can prevent trashed beaches and debris-filled water.
