For marine life, the damage done by discarded plastic rubbish in the ocean is vast although it is difficult to quantify, says Doug Woodring, who founded the Plastic Disclosure Project with the support of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) to help eliminate the source of the problem. “There’s no body count in the ocean when something dies,” says Woodring who is also chair of AmCham’s Environment Committee. “This material (plastic) which we thought was so easy to use can be harmful to the planet and the ecosystem.”
