There are many aspects to educating the public about plastic waste, usage and sustainability.We have identified three key areas in this regard; educating the public with facts, educating the youth on protecting their ocean heritage and educating businesses and producers on how to best balance profit with sustainability.
We also believe strongly that education cannot be dissociated from infrastructure. We have therefore set ourselves the goal of also implementing tangible change wherever we educate communities. This is in order to ensure that some improvements are made to their disposal models, in order to ACT on the things that are taught to them. This is a shared responsibility by Municipalities too, who are still important in the end-game solution.
The quote, "you protect what you love" resonates with us and we hope to connect more people to the beauty around them, be it forests, rivers or oceans.
