ABOUT

Why 4ocean is partnering with the Center for Marine Debris Research

Sharing our vision of a trash-free ocean, the Center for Marine Debris Research at Hawai'i Pacific University is the global hub of excellence for plastic pollution research. The Center exists to combat plastic pollution and other threats to the unique environment and biota of the Hawaiian islands.

Bringing together academic, government, and industry scientists, the Center works to develop scientific standards and optimize research methodology as they investigate the sources, transport, fate, and impacts of plastic in our oceans.

Their rigorous scientific research will advance the world’s understanding of plastic pollution, drive public awareness and action, and guide policymakers in developing and implementing viable solutions to this global environmental crisis.
