The UN Environment’s Clean Seas campaign is making waves around the world.
Since its launch in February this year, the platform has promoted a number of creative initiatives to encourage everyone to contribute to tackling marine pollution. The need for action is pressing, with one report estimating the scourge of plastic waste could see the ‘oceans contain more plastics than fish (by weight)’ by 2050.
Clean Seas has won the backing of 32 governments worldwide, over 10,000 individuals, and a growing number of public and private sector organisations.
And it is partnering with one of the teams currently taking part in the epic round-the-word Volvo Ocean Race is raising awareness about the problem of marine plastic waste.
“We are racing around the world in the Volvo Ocean Race to support the UN Environment’s Clean Seas campaign with the ambition of raising awareness of the plastic pollution in our oceans,” Dee Caffari, who is leading the Turn the Tide on Plastic team said in a statement.
To truly turn the tide on the plastic, everyone has to get o board and contribute. Getting involved with the Clean Seas campaign is one of the best ways to do this.
