Now retired, my career involved water quality issues at many levels. I worked in industry and saw many positive efforts to keep our water resources clean and plentiful. The drastic increases in plastic pollution over the last few decades was not something that anyone thought about. Algalita was the first to put numbers and data behind the issue of plastic pollution, showing the world just how extensive the problem is. From the discovery of the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch", to the publication of PLASTIC OCEAN, Algalita and its founder, Captain Charles Moore, have been at the forefront of understanding and educating the world about plastic pollution. Small, but mighty, and with a voice people listen to, Algalita remains an important part of the fight against plastic's intrusion into our environment.
