Instituto Meu Oceano
Sao Paulo, Brazil
Marine pollution, Ocean literacy
Instituto Meu Oceano works on the issue of marine litter, acting strongly to generate awareness of and influence policy on waste management along the Brazilian coast, and in particular in developing cities. According to Instituto MeuOceano, the lack of infrastructure and inadequate management practices in Brazilian municipalities that include Coastal Zoning, contribute to the disposal of waste in our oceans. They act to complement efforts that the local community make towards improving solid waste management, including to intercept upstream marine litter, preventing its generation in the first place.
