Oceans are silently choking on our plastic waste. Plastic and synthetic materials are the most common types of debris in our oceans and are having horrific impacts on marine wildlife and systems. As an island continent "girt by sea" marine debris is of particular importance for Australia. Creatures get entangled in plastics and drown and ingested concentrated toxins from plastics pose a threat to the health of the food chain. Plastics also transport and introduce species into new environments. Anja Taylor catches up with the CSIRO research team spearheading the Marine Debris Survey, a world first study of the plastics around our coastline.

Roz Savage, British ocean rower and environmental campaigner, talks about plastics in our oceans, plastic pollution being called a "man-made global catastrophe" in the context of her first-hand experience with the scale of the problem as she rowed, solo, from San Francisco to Hawaii on the first stage of her Pacific Ocean crossing. Meeting up with the two scientists on the Junk craft, they shared dinner and their research with Roz several hundred miles east of Hawaii. Bottom line is we need to use less of it. Each one of us can significantly reduce our use of plastic and make a positive difference in the world. More information about Roz at www.rozsavage.com. She was interviewed by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, voices of sustainability. Published on Jan 28, 2014
Howard Lack CEO of the documentary project, Plastic Oceans talks about his fundraising activities for increasing awareness of the plastic polluting our oceans, particularly the tiny bits and pieces. He references UNESCO leaders and the naturalist David Attenborough who believes "when people are aware of the problem they want to solve the problem." What the film project focuses on is increasing awareness.
Howard was interviewed in the Fall of 2013 in San Francisco, California by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, Voices of Sustainability.
Howard Lack, CEO of Plastic Oceans in this interview talks about the film project Plastic Oceans has undertaken with the objective of increasing awareness of the plastic that is in our oceans negatively effecting our wildlife and the health of humans, especially our children as plastic moves through the food chain. This is a cause Mr. Lack is passionate about as you will hear as he discusses the role of plastic toxins on developing nations; the importance of accepting personal responsibility; the development of solutions to the problems; and recognition of plastic, when properly recycled, as an energy source. Plastic Oceans provides a powerful and effective platform campaigning for, supporting and funding targeted solutions aimed at significantly reducing plastic pollution in the environment.
Steve Russell, VP Plastics Department, of ACC Plastics notes we all agree that plastics should be used wisely to begin with, reduced when possible, and recycled when finished. Goodwill among all the "sides" to this issue gives him confidence we will succeed.
This short three minute video looks at the issues of plastic pollution in our oceans and talks about some of the possible solutions. Uploaded on Aug 5, 2010
