World Oceans day in Chile 2018 turned out to be a very eclectic mix of public activities for the team this year. After two screenings at Universities were cancelled because of #metoo related strikes, the team had to get creative. Chile, a country that recently adopted a nationwide bag ban, is starting to be aware of the damages single use plastics are generating and is taking action. So what better place to organize a “A Plastic Ocean ” screening, together with the neigbors of Providencia, a Municipality of which the mayor last week declared war on single-use plastic bottles as well?!?
Plastic Oceans Chile has signed an alliance with Duoc UC University to reduce their plastic footprint
After two months of hard work, our team in Chile signed an alliance with the Natural Resources Faculty of the DuocUC University in Valparaíso. With the alliance, Plastic Oceans Chile supports the plastic reduction efforts of the University and also the newly created student movement ‘desplastificate’ which translates to: ‘unplastify yourself.’
