Denmark has allocated 3 million. DKK for financing an information campaign on reducing marine litter; the campaign will primarily take place in 2018. The campaign is directed towards three groups, 1) fishermen, 2) sailors and other people visiting the harbors, and 3) people visiting the beach. The efforts are thus directed towards the waste that can be found at sea and the waste found on the beaches. Therefore, efforts are being directed fishermen and sailors, all of whom can potentially contribute to the direct pollution of the sea by sailing and in ports, as well as efforts aimed at people who visit the beach.
Focus will be on how important it is to prevent the waste from ending in the ocean - and what to do to avoid littering in everyday life. The effort is expected to focus on information about decomposition times for the most common types of marine waste, and its sources, and how to prevent it from becoming marine litter.
