Clean -up Projects
It is almost impossible to accurately document all the waste that is collected and much of the plastic has already broken down and is mixed with the sand and shingle. 7.5 Billion people have contributed to this mess and it seems that we will need 7.5 Billion people to clean it up!
It would be easy to get disheartened but changes are taking place that will reduce the volume of plastic reaching the seas and we can help reduce the amount that has already reached our coastlines and we must continue our efforts.
Clean up efforts take place every day by cruisers in anchorages around the world but in addition cruising sailors try to organise a more co-ordinated approach whenever possible.
