Description

Ocean Recovery Alliance is an NGO based in Hong Kong and California, which focuses on solutions and innovations for reducing plastic pollution on a global scale, including work with the World Bank, UN Environment and Clinton Global Initiative. In 2010, Ocean Recovery Alliance announced two initiative, the Plastic Disclosure Project (www.plasticdisclosure.org), and Global Alert. Both of these are now starting to be used by the World Bank and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) for their respective ocean programs. Plastic waste, however, is an issue which effects almost all nations and territories, and is a community and business issue which can be turned into opportunities if the focus is changed to be that of "resource management", not waste handling. The group also founded the Plasticity Forum, focused on the future of plastic and where the leaders are going with innovation, design, materials and solutions. www.plasticityforum.com
