ZERO-PLASTIC WASTE INITIATIVE
With the support of Plastic Oceans, AHOI will continue its work on the Zero-Plastic Waste Gros Morne Initiative. This project takes a look at the full life cycle of plastic from the point it is made to the moment we find it discarded, so we can target specific sources of plastic litter and debris. This initiative gathers baseline data on the most problematic sources of plastic litter, which will help inform real solutions to plastic pollution. AHOI is working closely with businesses, town councils, other NGO’s and community members through various programs to eliminate unnecessary single-use plastics in local communities, raise awareness about the impacts of plastic pollution, build capacity at the community level and make the Gros Morne Region a leader in the circular economy.
