The global plastics alliance announces fourfold increase in projects to combat marine litter

The Global Plastics Alliance (GPA) released its 5th Progress Report announcing close to 400 marine litter prevention projects have been planned, underway, or completed as of early 2020. The GPA, a collaboration among plastic industry associations around the world, said the accounting of projects represents an increase of four times the amount since 2011 when the group was formed.

The projects vary widely, from beach clean ups to expanding waste management capacities, and from global research to awareness and education campaigns.
