Join us on December 15th to discuss Marine Plastic Litter in the Marine Environment.

Single-use plastic is a threat to life in the ocean and the planet as a whole. It is estimated there are over 150 million tonnes of plastic in the world’s oceans and every year one million birds and over 100,000 sea mammals die from the ingesting or becoming entangled in plastic waste. It is estimated that plastic in the sea will treble by 2025.

During this 60 minute webinar, we will bring together MSC Cruises, Greenseas Trust, The International Marine Purchasing Association and Pennington Manches Cooper LLP. They will present the work they are doing to reduce their plastic consumption, and will dive into the future possibilities and challenges facing the industry as we try to alter our dependency on plastic.
