Ever since we interviewed Captain Charles Moore, eight years ago, we have been covering the problem of plastics polluting our oceans and collecting in the ocean gyres, those rotating currents that circulate within the world’s oceans. 

The problem continues to grow. 

We devote this edition of Forthright Radio to the question of how to deal with it.  In the first half of the show, we speak with Boyan Slat, who has developed the concept of an Ocean Cleanup Array, which in 2012 was awarded Best Technical Design at the Delft University of Technology.  Then, In the second half of the show, we speak with George Leonard, chief scientist of the Ocean Conservancy.  Sept. 20th marks their 28th annual global coastal clean-up, and we'll be speaking with him about his work with Ocean Conservancy, and how we  can each do our part to deal with the ever growing problems of plastic pollution.
