Take Action

We Need Your Help 

Plastic pollution is a global problem that can only be solved if we all work together on a local level. We must be part of the solution – not part of the problem.
It is not only important to raise awareness of the impact of plastic pollution within each community, in all available languages, but it is important to retell the story in different ways so that it resonates within each community.

STEP TWO

We have partnered with Pixhug, the innovative and leading social change platform that connects social media with social responsibility. Help us raise awareness and funds for Plastic Oceans Canada by posting a photo of how you are activated to rethink plastic to the Pixhug app and Pixhug will give those photos and ‘likes’ meaning by donating to Plastic Oceans Canada.

STEP THREE

Want to reduce your “Plastic Footprint”? Take steps through many new outlets and organizations popping up across Canada, for alternatives to plastics for everyday life, including no packaging. Some of these alternative outlets and organizations offer a % of your purchases to directly benefit Plastic Oceans Foundation Canada.

What next?

We have developed educational materials targeting corporations to encourage them to improve environmental sustainability practices in their businesses. We are creating new film footage of the impact of plastic pollution specific to Canadian provinces and territories, and also  solutions and activism  in these areas.
We have also created new shortened film footage (20 min, 8 min) and continue to develop additional film footage with curriculum for use in schools and other educational institutions.
