Printed in the UK by Stephens & George Working with waste FROM THE EDITOR As global efforts to reduce pollution in our rivers and oceans ramp up, marina operators continue to play their part in clean-up operations, reaching out to local communities and creating social events that are educational and fun. It’s amazing how much rubbish is to be found a stone’s throw from pristine marinas (see p.38) and good to learn how marinas can be proactive with waste by thinking through the concept of ‘trash to treasure’ (see p.35). Nowhere is the ‘repurposing’ approach more valuable than with plastics pollution. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), at least 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year, making up 80% of all marine debris found in surface water through to deep-sea sediments. Responsible thinking is required, and top of the IUCN mantra is ‘refuse/rethink/ redesign/conserve’. But when this is impractical, recycling is always a better option than incineration or landfill. The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit based in the Netherlands, launched its first product with plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in October 2020 – sunglasses that were a sell-out (out of stock as of February 2022) – proving that recycling ocean plastics is both feasible and successful. At the end of April, The Ocean Cleanup signed a seven-year global partnership deal with Korea-based vehicle manufacturer Kia. Kia will provide funds and in-kind contributions for ocean operations and for the construction of Interceptor Original river cleaning devices. It intends to integrate recycled ocean plastic harvested by The Ocean Cleanup into its production processes. Boyan Slat, founder and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup, signed the deal with Kia president and CEO Ho Sung Song. Slat said: “Plastic is not inherently a bad material, but we must use it responsibly. We demonstrate how we can turn pollution into a solution by launching applications that help clean the oceans and simultaneously – together with our partner Kia – provide proof that recycled plastic can be used sustainably. I hope that we can inspire others to do the same.” If you feel inspired to make more effort to reduce pollution, eliminate singleuse plastics and recycle responsibly, there are many organisations ready to give guidance and plenty of clean-up initiatives operating nationally and internationally. Several took place in March/April, including Clean Up Australia Day, and The Great Global Cleanup – with partners World Cleanup Day, Keep America Beautiful and Let’s Do It World – launched by earthday.org. Other key events, such as International Coastal Cleanup Day (17 th September) are still to come. This initiative, launched in the USA 30 years ago, now encompasses over 100 countries working together, and uniting for one special day, “to help make a difference in the way beaches, coasts, seas and oceans are able to survive and thrive.” © 2022 Loud & Clear Publishing Ltd Views expressed by individual contributors in this issue are not necessarily those of Loud & Clear Publishing Ltd.
