Craig Leeson and his team spent four years and visited more than 20 locations to research and understand the size of the plastic crisis in the oceans around the world. Their findings are disheartening, at the very least.

Luckily, there's a way to turn this around but it will take a huge, worldwide effort to do it with enough time to rescue entire maritime species and ecosystems. Crig Leeson is an award-winning journalist, television presenter and filmmaker. His debut cinematic feature film, “A Plastic Ocean”, which he wrote and directed was ranked number one documentary on iTunes in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
