Plastic Ocean Project, Inc Needs You
Introduction

Learned about the invasion of plastic into our oceans via Charlie Moore and the Algalita Marine Research Foundation.  Plastic pollution is just as pelagic as air pollution because it is everywhere.  Chemicals from it in our food, water, and land. We need to use plastics in moderation. 

I studied the issues of plastic pollution as a thesis in the Graduate Liberal Studies Program at University of North Carolina Wilmington.  I also work with fantastic chemists in the Chemistry Dept. at UNCW on the Administrative level.  They have been a huge resource in understanding the chemical component to the issues of plastic. I am now paying it forward bringing undergrads and graduates interested in learning more about this issue out to sea with me.  Check out: http://www.causes.com/profiles/46368328
