This campaign empowers youth to be part of the solution to reducing single-use plastic waste.
Plastic Oceans International is providing water refilling stations to under-served schools around the globe, while also providing a social entrepreneurship element, through which students will raise funds to purchase additional refilling stations for their campus or other plastic-reducing project – thus empowering them to directly be part of the solution.
We need to raise $2,500 per school to provide them with the following package:
- One water refilling station.
- 100 plastic-free reusable water bottles*
- An informational guide that outlines the issue of plastic pollution and the importance of being part of the solution
* Additional water bottles will be made available at our cost.
Students are able to sell bottles as part of a fundraising campaign that they organize and run. Those funds are used to purchase additional refilling stations or support their own plastic-reducing project
Our 2019 Goal is to fund the program at 250 schools around the world, inspiring a new generation to rethink plastic, while also keeping up to 25 Million plastic bottles from polluting our environment over the next several years..
Less than 10% of the 2.7 million tons of plastic from bottled water is recycled.
One refill station reduces up to 250,000 plastic bottles over it’s average lifetime of 10 years.
