On February 15th, we will be celebrating our annual Ocean’s Day event – a time when OurPlanet students and families celebrate the wonders of the world’s ocean and pause to consider the vital roles that the marine ecosystem plays in our life. Ocean Day helps to raise the awareness and inspire in helping to conserve this amazing resource.
Yet all is not right in our oceans, and the reason is plain to see – plastic. We find it littering our beaches, chocking our wildlife, poisoning our seas and even ending up in the food we eat. OurPlanet continues to encourage solutions to plastic pollution and preventing marine litter for a healthier ocean.
Our Oceans Day celebration this year will be combined with ‘Waste Free Week’ and various activities – Please click on this link to find out more about our ‘Waste Free Week’.
