Hi Robert, It is great that you are active on this issue, which I think is important. A few things have occurred to me: 1. an international convention on this would be great, but realistically will probably take a few years 2. perhaps another prong to an approach to reduce waste going into oceans could work on solutions in the meantime, eg with groups like the US Conference of Mayors at a practical level, putting pressure on them to move faster on the issue 3. an organisation called Ecological Internet has been effective at organising large numbers of people to contact political leaders and officials about important environmental matters like this one, and they seem to get good results. It might be useful if you work with them to get a high impact campaign. I have written to EI and let them know about your campaign and suggested they could partner up with WPCG. Regards Monica D.

Hi Robert, also the US Conference of Mayors has a subgroup called (I think) the Mayors' Water Council - would need to confirm that though. I have sent you some links to more info about that - gist is they are aware of the issue of waste in the oceans and there has been experimentation with filters, with some results that sound quite good. I would like to see everything move fast on this. Also would love to know what is happening in the rest of the world to reduce the amount of waste/rubbish going into the oceans.
