Join us as we discuss why plastic pollution in the marine environment is a huge problem, current recycling issues, plastic reduction policies, and how we can reduce our consumption of single-use plastics through efforts like Surfrider’s Ocean Friendly Restaurant program.

Vicki Conlon is the lead for San Diego Surfrider’s Ocean Friendly Restaurant program, and has been a Surfrider Foundation member and volunteer for 20 years. Along with her team, she has been responsible for getting hundreds of restaurants in the San Diego area to move away from single-use plastics and adopt more sustainable practices.
