WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE

Many kids live already in an environment like this. If we don't clean up the ocean from plastic and stop the waste that going into it this will be everyone's Future.

By  2050 there will be more Plastic in the Ocean than Fish. 2.6 Billion people depend on Sea Food as their main food. It will also have severe consequences on our Climate. A Micro Plastic Disaster.

This is important!

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER - changing the world

MY friends and I changed some people's shopping habits by suggesting a solution to the 'Single Use Shopping Bags'  to bring their own reusable bag.

It was great fun as we saw how people did not even know that plastic kills animals. We were able to tell them about the consequence of plastic going into landfill, micro plastic, leaking poison into our waterways and killing of species and making us very sick. They got it! Us kids will make a difference by educating ourselves and teaching each other solutions.

WE can make this a fun and cool movement!

"Student learning & telling story through video!     We need this film!  It supports the project development, called the sustainability action process. It works for both a learning and a leadership approach. Sustainability is now a Cross-curriculum Priority and the preferred method is student-centred, project-based."

"This film is the perfect catalyst for students to look at the issue of plastic waste and then develop some strategies around reductions, avoidance, reducing plastic litter in school/the street - waterways - ocean. With an easy call to action for reducing plastic use and waste. "Mark Caddey, 

Senior Project Officer, Sustainable Communities, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage

 

My SCHOOL FILM

"PLASTIC ALARM!" 

(22 min long). I made a film with kids for kids in schools to educate them about the problems and solutions of plastic pollution.

It begins with the story of a sea turtle released back into the ocean. I speak with children from different schools, countries and interview Role Model Dave Rastovich, Environmental Organisations and scientists. This film is aimed to have social and environmental Impact on a global Level. It is being shown in schools globally, i.e. Norway.

Kids love it!

So, I (with the help of my mum, who is a film maker) have come a long way since we made the story of plastic pollution and Sea Turtles. One of the people who inspired me and gave me the feeling I can do this, is Dave Rastovich (soul surfer) who has been on board to support my mission since the beginning. Thank you Dave.

Last year I was chosen out of 800 children to be featured in an ABC episode of 'Dirtgirl' as the 'Plastic Free Boy', who is teaching her about plastic. ('Dirtgirl' is an awesome kids TV show that has aired to 34 different countries including USA and Canada), Thank you for helping me to get the message out!
