People Who Track Ocean Plastic: Algalita
Most of our trash goes out of sight, out of mind in landfills.
But plenty of the world's refuse ends up in waterways, to end up in the ocean. And plastics in the ocean can present hazards to sea creatures and the health of creatures up the food chain.
The organization called Algalita is dedicated to studying plastic trash and its effects at sea. Founder Captain Charlie Moore joins us with tales of what he's seen... and picked up.
