It’s estimated that there are 600 lbs of plastic waste in the sea for every pound of plankton. One in four fish (including those we eat) have plastic in them. How much more can we take?

Captain Charles Moore is an internationally recognized expert on marine plastic pollution and head of Algalita, a marine research and education nonprofit aiming is to prevent ocean plastic pollution. His team developed the first protocols for measuring plastic debris in oceans, methods now used globally by scientists and researchers. His passion for the well-being of the oceans is immediately felt and easily contagious—take a listen for yourself.

  1. I have been painting all of my life, but when I became very serious about the content of my art, i thought about what it is that I care about the most. That was about the time Captain Moore’s Algalita Foundation was formed, and so much of my work is about that…not all, but most.

    A mutual friend and I decided to make a poster using one of my paintings and have been dedicated ever since. We appreciate very much that Captain Moore can be trusted to give us the truth, and my painting will go on. Half of any proceeds from my work will go toward the cause.
