As you know, OMG is committed to helping to educate communities across the country about the issue of Plastic Pollution so we can start cleaning up our environment for humans and animals alike. We started our Plastic Awareness Coalition just over a year ago and we now have almost 70 like minded organizations on board, all working to help spread the word and help communities find solutions.
We also launched last year our Plastic Awareness Curriculum which is a weeklong environmental education program for elementary schools which meets the National Standards for Science guidelines. The program offers an hour long curriculum for each day of the week and covers all aspects of Plastic Pollution, Plastic Education and Recycling for the students, their families and for the general community.
One of our Plastic Awareness Coalition members (The Two Hand Project) recently worked with CNN Australia and produced a report on the issue of plastic pollution in Sydney Harbor.
