Ocean plastic can be stopped. By working at the source of the problem, businesses and communities can show that they are Ocean Certified.
‘’The issue of pellets in oceans is more than a pollution indicator, it also flags the attitude of the plastics industry to extended producer responsibility at a very fundamental level. As a Chemist and Chemical Engineer, I have always believed that we should be justifiably proud of the industry we represent and to also act to preserve the reputation of the industry.’’ Prof. Edward Kosior
Catch Plastics works with communities to protect our oceans by initiating environmental education programmes, beach clean ups and tailored programmes for local governments, councils and businesses.
Catch Plastics support businesses to become Ocean Certified, ensuring that no plastic pellets leak from their location through easy to follow steps. Through the inspection of the facility, areas of improvement in terms of plastic pellet leakage will be identified. Recommendations, for the business to implement, will be provided and annual reviews will be run to support businesses in the creation of a leak free plastic processing environment.
“Stopping Ocean Plastics Report – An Agenda for Action”

Prevention at source is therefore the key action required to deal with plastic pollution and its associated impacts. Read more here about what governments, communities and NGOs have done so far to tackle the issue and what could and should be done to take action.
