American Participants

Expanding into the U.S. in 2022, the Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup is working with local partners and academic institutions to deploy litter capture technologies along Lake Erie, Lake Michigan, Lake Ontario, and the Niagara River shorelines to tackle plastic pollution in the Great Lakes and its waterways.

As part of our expansion into the United States, the Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup will be implementing three innovative litter capture and cleanup technologies at a dozen locations to clean up Midwestern beaches and waterways , thanks to a generous donation from Meijer.
