Tampa Bay Restoration & the Great Bay Scallop Search: Tampa Bay's restoration is a HUGE success story that could only happen with cooperation among non-profits, volunteers, the local and state government and industry. Twenty years ago, they set a goal to clean up the polluted bay. They EXCEEDED their goal and are now a model for other troubled and polluted waterways. Martin EcoSystems - In Louisiana and five other states, Martin EcoSystems has found a way to use recycled plastic to protect coastline by building floating islands and populating them with indigenous plants. This innovative family-run business is rebuilding vulnerable wetlands, one tiny island at a time. Artist Pam Longobardi travels the world "harvesting" plastic trash to turn into amazing art that gets people talking about how to stop trashing our oceans. Pam says beauty is her greatest weapon as people first appreciate her art installations and then hear the story behind where she finds all her materials.
