Sewage containerIn January, DC Bureau, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of investigative reporters ran two great in depth pieces on cruise industry lobbying, cruise industry pollution and how cruise ships, despite their dependence on the very pristine environments to which they travel, are dumping raw sewage into our oceans.

The reporters interviewed Marcie Keever, Friends of the Earth US’ Clean Vessels Campaign Director and Howard Breen Program and Development Director for Friends of the Earth Canada, along with several other individuals and organizations who work on this important issue. 

 

Read the articles and tell your Member of Congress to support the Clean Cruise Ship Act which would restrict cruise ship dumping!  Watch DC Bureau's video below!
