Reduce the Use: Plastic in Three Parts

Since 2020, Mobile Baykeeper has worked with the NOAA Marine Debris Program to educate and build awareness about the city’s litter problem and how it affects our waters, while providing solutions to local business owners about finding alternatives to single-use plastics. This program was undertaken in collaboration with Plastic Free Gulf Coast, Downtown Mobile Alliance, and the city of Mobile. In “Reduce the Use: Plastic in Three Parts,” which was filmed and edited by Joseph Brennan, we talk with the Noble South Restaurant, Heritage Seafood shrimping company, and Osprey Initiative about the problem of single-use plastics and the threat they pose to our waters. Funding for this project was provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program.
