The Global Ocean Commission has been on a voyage of discovery about the global ocean – its importance, its peril and its potential. They listened to experts from science, academia, business and NGOs and identified eight proposals that show what needs to be done to stimulate a cycle of ocean recovery.
One of these proposals focuses on eliminating plastic pollution from our Ocean. The proposal calls upon setting time bound plastic reduction targets while creating incentives to promote recycling and producer responsibility.
