Mike Hannah of Enviropod joined other leaders in marine plastic pollution prevention to look at solutions and ways to work together to use trash traps to divert litter from the waterways, collect data and increase awareness in our communities.
Globally, the contamination of plastic waste in freshwater and marine ecosystems is increasing, with an estimated 30 million tonnes of plastic waste entering aquatic ecosystems in 2020. If we continue business as usual, this number may increase as much as three-fold by 2030. There is no time to waste, and we all must do our part.
The workshop introduced initiatives and technologies such as Enviropod's LittaTrap , Seabins , Trash Wheel and Ocean Cleanup, all stakeholders from across the globe who use trash traps to divert litter from our waterways.
The workshop was held 24th & 25th March and was sold out , but the sessions had been recorded and are available here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hllBkj-2Axg.
Mike's 5 minute presentation starts at 1m.25sec.
