Saving our seas

Did you know more than 8 million tons of plastic waste makes its way into the ocean every year?

The growing amount of plastic in the ocean is extremely concerning.

Georgia’s coastal line is a point of pride for our state.

From tourism to trade, many of our top industries rely on the health of the ocean.

That’s why I signed on to the bipartisan Save Our Seas 2.0 Act.

The Save Our Seas 2.0 Act will:

  • Help reduce the creation of plastic waste
  • Find new uses for debris that already exists
  • Support innovative technologies to address ocean waste 

Trash and waste in our oceans is a global problem and the world needs the United States to lead on a solution.
