SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): A couple of South African plastic industry organizations and a plastics producer have become part of the Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) pledge- a global campaign aimed at reducing plastic pollution in oceans and rivers. The OCS members commit to prevent resin pellet, flake and powder loss, so as to limit plastic entering oceans and rivers. It must be noted that plastic pollution has been badly impacting marine life and ecosystems.
