Josh McLean from Ocean Legacy, a Canadian based, internationally recognized non-profit organization, will talk about their world-leading program to respond to this international crisis. Learn more about how you can get involved and help transform, cleanup and prevent ocean plastic problems in the first place.
EPIC: Plastic Pollution Emergency Response™ program consists of a 4-pillar approach to dealing with ocean plastics:
Ocean Legacy’s goal is to give the plastic waste recovered from oceans and beach cleanups around the world an ECONOMIC VALUE, stimulating the PLASTIC CIRCULAR ECONOMY while providing communities the long-term TOOLS they need to STEWARD THEIR ENVIRONMENT keeping MORE PLASTIC OUT OF THE OCEANS in the first place. Ocean Legacy works with scientists, government, non-profits, artists, industries and concerned citizens to catalyze innovative solutions to combat plastic pollution. By working together, they create tools for communities around the world to help them clean up and manage their post-consumer plastic by transforming it into a valuable resource.
They believe worldwide change begins with dedicated, well-informed individual action. The goal is to educate the public about the plastic crisis we face and foster a global movement to end plastic pollution. Anyone can fight the devastation being caused by plastic pollution, but we all need to understand the problem.
Since 2019 the Mayne Island Conservancy and Recycling Society have been working with Ocean Legacy with the goal of redirecting clean plastic and a specific range of other materials from the annual beach cleanup to Ocean Legacy recycling centres.
