Save Our Seas Act of 2018
The newly passed Save Our Seas Act of 2018 reauthorizes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program and calls for the U.S. government’s help in supporting international waste management solutions to reduce marine debris.
According to the Plastics Industry Association, “the bill will help reduce the amount of waste in the ocean and promote recycling in developing nations.”
“While marine debris is a huge problem, it’s also a solvable one,” said Cal Dooley, President and CEO of the American Chemistry Council. “We know there is much more to be done, and we and our members are actively engaged in delivering well-researched, sustainable solutions to reduce litter and prevent marine debris,” Dooley added.
