One Solution: Return to Sender

by scott harrison

Our kindred souls at SAS (Surfers Against Sewage) have been exercising an novel approach to marine and beach debris...and in the process, bring to light the problem of ocean-going shipping container loss - estimated by Lloyds of London at 10,000 (10,000!) per year.

Visit the SAS site and read it ==> here. Bitchen! (or perhaps "Fab!" would be more appropriate.)

Some may remember that one of the indications of a floating trash problem in the North Pacific came after a Nike shipment vessel sunk there and unleashed thousands of pairs of nice, white shoes into our ocean... Read about these nostalgic olde times and see how long the shoes took to wash up in Oregon/Washington ==> here.
