Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean. That’s enough to cover every coastline on earth.

Sailors For The Sea, a leading Newport-based conservation organization that engages, educates, inspires and activates the sailing and boating community toward healing the ocean, is working to stop this problem at the source by eliminating single use plastic and they say they need leaders like you to get involved.
