The reality of plastic pollution is that it is happening in every home, office, school and community.
Considering the facts, it’s no surprise that it’s the most prevalent type of marine litter worldwide.
The extent of plastic use is mind-boggling.
With this in mind, the Surfrider Foundation created its Rise Above Plastics program in 2007 with a mission to reduce the impacts of plastics in the marine environment, raise awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution, and advocate for a reduction of single-use plastics and the recycling of all plastics.
