Description:
Thorough implementation of existing legislation and policies on the release of litter, on land and at sea, helps to reduce marine debris at the source. There is already a wealth of environmental regulatory instruments addressing release of litter both on land and at sea which, if implemented to their full extent, would have a noticeable effect on the amount of marine plastic debris released into the ocean.
