Dear Friend of the Sea,

This month, we are all about trash — ocean trash, that is. Next week, we'll be releasing our 2010 Marine Debris Index, the world’s only country-by-country, state-by-state breakdown of trash in our ocean, lakes, rivers, and streams.

The report will clearly show that trash in the ocean is one of the most widespread pollution problems we face — and that it doesn’t fall from the sky, but from human hands. And those hands have the power to stop it! People like you can take steps every day to protect our planet — everyone counts.

In fact, trash in our ocean was recently a hot topic on our Facebook page. If you aren't already, become a fan of Ocean Conservancy on Facebook today — and join the ocean conversation.

Stay tuned next week for the launch of our marine debris report — along with more information about what you can do to help us combat the issue of marine trash. As always, thanks for being a big part of the solution!
