[GreenYes] Re: Can you feed the stuff to the fish?

I recently did a blog entry on the international coastal clean-up
and Clean Up the World day events in Sept. in Latin America and
the Caribbean (LAC).

Have since been working on a follow-up piece on how to sustain
the education and anti-litter effort on coastlines and waterways
year-round, not just once a year or seasonal ?event days.? I
sent out emails to the Ocean Conservatory and several of the LAC
NGOs participating in these events soliciting their ideas on how
to do so. Haven?t heard back from OC (maybe they weren?t happy
with my article?), but have from some of the LAC NGOs with some
good input, mostly about the educational and organizational
hurdles they face, but also a few good ideas about community
organizations, partnerships with mayors and affected hotels and
restaurants, use certification of Blue Flag as catalyst, etc.

I was wondering if GreenYes participants had some ideas they?d be
willing to contribute (always happy to identify sources and link
to them!), either here in the forum on privately by email, or
could at least recommend to me people who might? All input


Best Regards,

I worry about all the food service containers and utensils that
are dumped into the environment becoming fish and bird food
before totally decomposed.
