Documenting the characteristics of ocean plastic pollution increases our knowledge about its size and scope
Alongside other efforts, it is important to achieve a great and detailed knowledge about the characteristics, size, and scope of ocean plastic pollution. Obtaining such, is an important tool for pressuring politicians to take action on the matter.
If you traverse on the ocean frequently and have experience with taking water samples, or are involved in a network of committed sailors who might know, you can contribute to expanding our knowledge of the scope of plastic pollution, and help identify sources of pollution. So if you are planning on going on an expedition at sea, either in Denmark or abroad, this is also a way to engage yourself in the Plastic Changer movement!
