The Call for Action is for voluntary commitments on marine litter. ACC’s Steve Russell, vice president of plastics, released the following statement:
“Experts agree: to stem the tide of marine debris, we must prevent land-based trash from reaching our oceans in the first place. We must do so urgently, with an initial focus on parts of the world where such systems are lacking. This includes reducing waste, improved collection and sortation, matched with the latest recycling and recovery technologies.
