Webinar Information

 

Did you know that municipalities in just 3 West Coast states are spending over $500 million annually to combat litter and curtail stormwater runoff debris that ends up on our beaches and shorelines?

On July 31, we will discuss the environmental and financial costs of this growing problem as well as ways to manage marine debris both upstream and downstream.

You’ll learn:
•    What constitutes marine debris and where it comes from
•    How to estimate the full costs of cleanup and prevention
•    How one coastal city found a way to recover millions of dollars annually
•    What new ideas are emerging regarding EPR laws that specifically target commonly littered items that end up in our marine environment

Our panel of experts includes:
Eben Schwartz, Statewide Outreach Manager and Marine Debris Program Manager, California Coastal Commission
Leila Monroe, Senior Attorney in the Oceans Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
John Schneider, PhD, CEO and Founder of Avalon Health Economics

We’ll show you the data and provide you with the tools that municipalities and marine debris reduction supporters need to understand and advocate for better litter prevention measures.
