Trash, plastics, and general marine debris continue to pollute lake, coastal, and ocean waters. Whether you’re sailing from the local yacht club, paddling your kayak, paddleboard, or dinghy in a harbor, or swimming in a favorite summer spot, pollution that’s seen and unseen is ubiquitous. It’s a danger to human health, the ecosystem, and our economy. No one willfully chooses to fish, swim, or sail in such waters, yet the contamination is impossible to avoid. Can anything be done to stop the flow of garbage and pollutants that are having such a negative impact on local waters?
