I am on a mission! On my 11th (January 2017) birthday i saw 3 Sea Turtles getting released back into the ocean. I asked my mum: 'Why are they not in the ocean?' She said: 'Because of Plastic Pollution'. As I felt really upset, my mum Karin Ecker, who is a professional film maker, who made many underwater documentaries for TV had a idea how she could help me to help the Turtles and other marine life.  8 million tons of plastic pollution enters the ocean every year killing 100 000s of marine animals. We decided to make a film together about me telling the story of the turtles to educate kids about the problems and inspire about the solutions of plastic pollution. After  11 months of working together and being on national TV, she had produced our 22 min documentary 'PLASTIC ALARM' . The film has up to date screened to over 120 000 kids in Australia and overseas. Kids are empowered to make better decisions and united to co-create a waste free future together because we care !

Please support our crowdfunding to make more films.



Many kids already live in an environment like this. 2 billion tons of plastic waste is produced every year. 8 million tons of it ends up i the ocean, killing marine animals and destroying the ocean. We need the ocean. Every 2nd breath we take comes from the ocean. 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. We are in this together!

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER - changing the world

Education is key!!! My film PLASTIC ALARM show in schools and community groups around the world about the problems and solutions of plastic pollution is already making a difference! Please help me show this film to all kids in school.

'You have really inspired all of us to try and reduce the amount of plastic we use and also to convince our families and other members of our community to do the same. Thank you for trying to make the world we live in a better place.'        St. Oliver Plunketts School, Victoria, Australia.

Please help me show this film to all kids in school.

WE can make this a fun and cool movement!
