“Ocean Plastics Pollution from Sources to Solutions” by Kara Lavender Law, Research Professor, Sea Education Association.

Plastic debris in the marine environment, ranging from microscopic to massive in size, poses risks to marine organisms and habitats, and results from human dependence on these diverse materials without a well-designed strategy for end-of-use management. Efforts to quantify the size of the problem and its impacts, as well as a toolbox of potential solutions will be discussed.
