Tsunami Debris Hits California

UPDATE! Debris from the March 2011 Japan tsunami is making its way across the ocean and landing along the West Coast. Most recently, the first confirmed debris from the earthquake washed up along California’s north coast. We interviewed Sherry Lippiatt, California Regional Coordinator of the NOAA Marine Debris Program, to get the most updated information on the status of this debris, its impacts to the California coastline, and how you can get involved and make a difference.

Everyday Action: Reduce single use packaging with a little effort: carry reusable bags, use your own coffee and water containers, and purchase in bulk when possible.
