PR cleanup with impact

We are super excited to see the efforts made by our leaders to give up a few hours  of air conditioned comfort and time with family in order to experience the front lines to pick up stinky trash on a hot and sticky Sunday morning.

“Once a person has participated in a cleanup, their awareness is permanently altered.” Kinzie

Even if this was a coordinated PR event, it has an impact.  ‪#‎bethechange‬

Long term solutions

  • Share information about the impact of our daily choices
  • Collaborate with marine conservation green groups
  • Coordinate with mainland counterparts

Get involved and think about these things

  • How does the local population feel about the rubbish?
  • What needs to be done to prevent trash going in the sea
  • More recycle bins on the waterfront
  • Banning single use plastics from the coastal edges
  • Install drinking fountains along at public beaches
  • Advice to restaurants in about dangers of polystyrene

A few simple questions

  • What alternatives can be used instead of plastic?
  • How can we better collect used plastic packaging?
  • How can we encourage recycling the plastic?
