Plastic Pollution Everywhere

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.

Check out this report:

Here is more on information about the great folks at The Two Hand Project:


Two Hands Project is a collaborative approach to dealing with plastic pollution: take 30 Minutes and Two Hands to clean up yOUR world anytime, anywhere.

Two Hands embodies the spirit of the huge national/international clean up days but asks what you can do with your two hands in 30 minutes, at a location near you, on any day of the year. They are taking it all back to grass roots, looking at what you can do to care for the place(s) that are near to you or important to you, anytime that you want.

Whether you’re doing this to improve the health of our oceans, reduce the risk to wildlife or to simply clean up unsightly trash in one of your favorite parks or beaches, what you can do with your own Two Hands is easy.

They want to hear the results of your Two Hands activities and see what plastic pollution you have removed from our beaches and parks, so make sure you like their Facebook Page Two Hands Project or tweet @2handsproject your pics and updates using the #twohands (or #2hands) hashtag. You can also share your ideas and stories on refusing plastic and how to end plastic pollution.
