Most plastic pollution at sea starts out on land as litter on our beaches, streets, and sidewalks. ¬†Surfrider Foundation’s Rise Above Plastics program is to reduce plastic waste that impacts our marine environment by raising awareness of the dangers caused by plastic pollution, advocating for a reduction of single-use plastic bags, and encouraging recycling of all plastics. ¬†Together we can rise above plastics.
