Global Alert is an app and web platform that allows anyone in the world to report trash hotspots in their waterways or coastlines. In, On or Under the water. By geotagging large areas of trash, members of the community can work with stakeholders to create cleanups, preventative programs and better management practices, so the trash does not continue to flow downstream, or out with the tide.
Rivers and creeks are like arteries that flow to our heart, the Ocean. Plastic pollution is like cholesterol trying to get to the heart, downstream.
SEE - SHARE - SOLVE with the Global Alert platform, whenever you are outside or travel.
By using the "Don't Lose It" attitude before it is too late, and deploying booms, nets and catchment devices, we can reduce the impact of plastic pollution in our waters and communities, bringing about engaged change with exciting, positive benefits.
Special thanks to Conservation Media Group (CMG), and their Action Grant, for the support to the short film on Global Alert as well, called: "Streams of Plastic" - http://bit.ly/StreamsOfPlastic
