How would you solve plastic pollution? Sea of Life hosts a ‘shark tank’ to field ideas
Plastics: it’s something we appear to can’t live without. Shopping and takeout bags, food containers, and bottles are all used every day, but after we’re done with them, we do not always think about the consequences. For many coastal communities, it’s a hazard to delicate ecosystems. Oceana Belize estimates that on average, we use eleven single-use plastic bags per week over a year. So how do we solve this problem? That’s what participants in Sea of Life’s ‘shark tank’ event tried to figure out. Dale McDougall attended the event on Sunday and has this story.
