Fujisawa Beach Cleaning Project will hold the 2015 Earth Day Beach Cleanup in Kugenuma on April 19th. This is the 6th year of the Project.
During these cleanups, plastic and cigarette filters are the most abundant finds. The goal is to raise awareness of our impact on the marine ecosystem. But the question goes deeper. Marcus Ericksen of the 5 Gyres Insitute explores this further and looks at stopping ocean pollution at its source.
