How to Clean Up Ocean Plastics Pollution: Actress Amy Smart and UCLA Experts on HuffPost Live

Actress Amy Smart joins UCLA experts Mark Gold and Megan Herzog to talk about what we can do to stop the ocean plastics scourge that is ruining our oceans, killing marine life, and causing millions of dollars in damage each year. It will take action at every level: individual choices, community plastic bag bans, citywide pollution control measures, state laws, national policies, and international agreements. But it can be done.

This discussion builds on a recent report from UCLA,"Stemming the Tide of Plastic Marine Litter: A Global Action Agenda," which details the top 10 steps that need to be taken now to solve this global problem.
