I wrote a few weeks ago about the Plastics Are Forever International Youth Summit. You may be wondering, how did it turn out? According to the Long Beach, Calif., Press-Telegram, more than 100 students from 14 countries attended the event, along with their faculty advisers. The students received information and training aimed at helping them to reduce plastic pollution in their hometowns. So you can expects the newly motivated troops to start to take action to get taxes and bans passed in many, many more communities in the coming months. Plastics News also has a story related to the summit today, on a study showing the extent that ocean fish eat plastic debris.
