The Friends of the Earth (FOE) non-profit organization just released its “Cruise Ship Report Card” for 2014. In a press release, the FOE states that “cruise ships dumped more than a billion gallons of sewage in the ocean this year, much of it raw or poorly treated . . ”
The amount of raw sewage discharged from cruise ships is truly staggering. Cruise ships are permitted to dump untreated raw fecal matter directly into the ocean, just three miles or more from shore.
