On 31 May Interspill Inform hosted an interesting webinar on Marine Debris and Plastic Pollution. It is part of our Clean Seas webinar series which is a prelude to the Clean Seas Day at Interspill on 23 June.
The webinar presented the scale of the problem, how it will get worse without governmental action and set out what can be done at the national and local levels.
It drew together a broad series of speakers who shared their experience of how these problems can be managed and whilst pervasive, with effort, the issue can be solved.
