We want to change the world’s attitude towards plastic within a generation

Plastic Oceans is working to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’.  We engage people of all ages, in all social situations, to understand the danger of continuing to perceive plastic to be disposable. Once they become aware of the ultimate threat to human health, it will become a personal choice to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment. We plan to tackle this issue, through an awareness campaign using film and media – our documentary feature film, A Plastic Ocean. We will continue to spread the message of the film activating students through education, engaging with industries through entrepreneurship and partnering with global organizations actively changing their communities.

Our Partnership:   Iguana Divers features A Plastic Ocean’s 21 minute version during school workshops and other community programs  as well as use some of their educational and promotional material on our Comunity outreach Programs. Every day we see first-had the torrential accumulation of single-use plastic all around us. We see it in garbage piling up waiting to be lifted, we see it in the excess of non-recyclable plastic containers that staple foods are sold in, with no other plastic-free alternative, we see it after a storm lined up on the beach, pictures of which you can see below, taken from different impromptu clean-ups done on our beloved Santa Teresa. You might not see it at first glance, or you might have simply gotten used to it. But it has to stop! We hope that more and more of our divers will become involved in fighting this plastic tendency, and our partnership with A Plastic Ocean is one way to spread awareness.
