Hope everyone watched Chronicle on Wednesday Evening

Great episode on our Maritime Gloucester Partnership on Chronicle.  Jamie from One Ocean One Love Shop, Amanda from Maritime Gloucester and Zach Thomas were interviewed.  They talked about the problem of plastic in our oceans.  The Skimmy Gobbler was also shown.  This Skimmer picks up the plastic.  Thank you to the Maritime Gloucester Partnership for helping to keep our ocean clean.

  1. I watched it great job here making a difference! Disclaimer while in uniform is always done even on writing articles. Now that’s a vacuum cleaner for sure Donna they recycle a lot here but not nearly enough and they are doing away with plastic in many areas, things have changed through the various age groups and it’s a problem, this was profiles on National Geographic world wide also link below always eye opener:

    PLANET OR PLASTIC?
    WE MADE PLASTIC. WE DEPEND ON IT. NOW WE’RE DROWNING IN IT.
    The miracle material has made modern life possible. But more than 40 percent of it is used just once, and it’s choking our waterways.

    Just after dawn in Kalyan, on the outskirts of Mumbai, India, trash pickers looking for plastics begin their daily rounds at the dump, joined by a flock of birds. In the distance, garbage trucks rolling in from the megacity traverse a garbage valley. The woman carrying the red cloth lives at the landfill.
