I had the wonderful pleasure of sitting down with Janis Searle Jones, the CEO of the Ocean Conservancy, to discuss how the Ocean Conservancy started working to prevent trash (debris and plastics) from entering the Oceans. Their work started with the launch and growth of the International Coastal Clean-Up, which removes 2.5 million pounds of trash every year. Now the Ocean Conservancy has a Trash Free Seas program that works to prevent plastic pollution from entering the Ocean.
My discussion with Janis involves how the Ocean Conservancy works in collaboration with other non-profit organizations and the private sector to address plastic pollution and create a more circular economy.
Take a listen to the podcast to find out more details about the Ocean Conservancy's Program and how Janis became CEO of the organization.
