There is a report that was released by the Ocean Conservancy that states over 80% of the marine debris that enters the Ocean comes from 20% of the countries, primarily in the Asian Region of the world. Most of it could be attributed to lack of a waste management infrastructure. Since then, the focus of marine debris has been on those countries, but over in North America, we are not perfect.
The lack of perfection was highlighted after a story came out that a Canadian Mall’s food court staff had managed to reduce the number of garbage bags by 117 bags/day. They now throw out 3 bags of garbage per day.
How did they do it? You will have to listen to the episode to find out!
