6 Weeks to Plastic Free is more than just reducing home waste.
We're on a mission to reduce ocean plastic in small seaside communities and promote a worldwide global movement against single use plastic.
the island shOP project
We are working with residents of a tiny Greek island that is inundated with plastic. With only a few hundred inhabitants the opportunity for change is huge. However shifting local mindset is as challenging as the logistics.
Turtles in plastic filled waters fuelled by a single-use disposable and littering culture... shifting to reduced single use plastic, sustainable practices, re-introduce recycling and educating tourists.
Project Island Shop is empowering locals who want to be the change they want to see. Selling water bottles and filters, zero waste products and plastic free food supplies to give locals and tourists the right to be plastic free.
Want to get involved? We need:
ZERO WASTE / BULK FOOD SUPPLIERS
WATER QUALITY EXPERTS
INFLUENCERS + JOURNALISTS + FILM MAKERS
This project is insanely simple - connecting influencers to use a universal hashtag #passonplastic when promoting plastic free living to their audiences.
Getting influencers to create a sustained global plastic free movement with the power of a single hashtag.
Influencers are free to influencer how they like but we can provide ideas, support and free plastic - free training to assist them in spreading the message.
Whether you're an influencer or know one who is passionate about ocean plastic. Get in touch.
ocean landfill site
Island's around the Mediterranean have landfill sites within 300m of the water. In times of rainfall trash can cascade into the sea and there is a risk that like on the island of Andros - the whole landfill site will collapse into the ocean sending thousands of tonnes of rubbish into the ocean.
We are mapping illegal landfill sites within 300m of the ocean on Mediterranean islands together with @touristsagainsttrash.
From Hydra to Lefdaka, Vis to Myoknos - these landfill sites are a huge risk to the Mediterranean.
We are seeking support from:
MEDIA + INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS
