The message of plastic pollution is spreading fast around the globe. At the end of June 2011, our Executive Director Daniella Russo led a Plastic Pollution Coalition group on a visit to Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Guatemala, at the special invitation of Preserve Planet, Jovenes Ambientalistas, SAVIA and G-22. The group included also PPC Science Advisory Board Chair Wallace “J” Nichols, Ph.D.; Nancy Buermeyer, Senior Policy Strategist of the Breast Cancer Fund, a member of PPC; and PPC Advisor JD Russo.
In a series of press conferences, media interviews and meetings with local environmental organizations, the PPC group discussed plastic pollution and its effects on eco-system degradation, public health, environmental justice and global awareness about these issues. In a top-line estimate, we have reached over 100,000 people in a combination of press conferences and media coverage.
