Please help us with our CROWDFUNDING for my film 22 min film PLASTIC ALARM to be shown in schools as well as ongoing videos for my plastic free movement.
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!
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!
This project 'PLASTIC FREE BOY' started 1.5 years ago when I was on the beach with my mum and friend. We saw 3 Sea Turtles being released into the ocean. I asked my mum: "Why are they not in the ocean already?" It was then that we decided to tell the story of the Turtles together, which turned into the Story of Plastic. Karin, my mum is a professional film maker. She has been the worker behind this campaign, producing the films/website/social media/outreach....
This journey has been very rewarding work and we are committed to keep going with this cause because she helps me to get my voice out to other kids for them to get their voice heard for our future planet.
To maintain this level of growth in reaching kids in schools all over Australia and overseas, please donation (tax deductible) Together we can reach
"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.
The story begins with the release of 3 sea turtles being released back into the ocean. I speak with children from different schools, countries, interview Role Model Dave Rastovich, Environmental Organisations and scientists. My film is aimed to have social and environmental Impact on a global Level. I want this film to empower kids in schools globally. Kids love it!
After a PLASTIC FREE BOY presentation at the Byron Bay Pre School, (I used to go to when I was little), I interviewed little Jay. He was so amazing and learned a lot of skills.
