CORAL REEF & COASTAL CLEANUPS
Plastic Oceans is supporting the cleanup efforts of Breathe and several other organization’s in Durban. Their monthly cleanups bring together an eclectic mix of stakeholders, and serve as an important awareness and education tool for the entire community.
We support Breathe’s efforts to take their educational message to schools throughout South Africa. They serve as engaging educational workshops that help children grasp the basics of plastic pollution and the value of protecting our ocean environments.
Plastic Oceans and Breathe collaborated on a major campaign to raise awareness about plastic pollution. Swim Against Plastic resulted in world-wide attention driven by world-record swim by Breathe’s founder, Sarah Ferguson. We continue to work together to use this experience as an education tool, which has included the publication of a book about the journey, Swimming Easter Island, and a documentary film to be released in 2021.
