By adopting available solutions, we can reduce the flow of plastic into the ocean by 80%.

The problem with plastic…is us. Plastic is a reliable, cheap to produce, and useful, but we don’t value it. More than 40% of plastic produced is designed for single use, and from the plastic we do discard in Canada, only 9% is recycled in Canada. Our addiction to plastic has led to its widespread infiltration to almost every part of our world. Researchers at Ocean Wise and other conservation organizations are finding more and more plastic every time they look – from deep sea sediment to the ocean surface. Science tells us if we act now, we can make a difference.

Below you will see a series of 9 learning modules for you to gain further learning about the challenges of plastic pollution and what you can do to reduce it’s impacts on the planet. You are expected to read and watch the modules and then participate in the quiz at the end of the module to confirm you have completed it. Enjoy your growth towards a life with a smaller impact on the planet. Have fun!
