Description

Common trash from consumer goods in coastal and inland locations makes up the majority of trash that ends up polluting our oceans. Marine litter damages ecosystems and kills marine life, threatening our food supplies, tourism, the fishing industry, and our economies. Through its 2017-2018 project “Building Community Solutions to Marine Litter”, the CEC led the first local, community-based approach in two transboundary areas – the Tijuana River and the Salish Sea – to help to identify and implement low-cost and low-technology solutions to local marine litter. This set of brochures includes a project overview and details the engagement processes and activities carried out in the Tijuana River and the Salish Sea watersheds.
