About the Program

Do you live like you love the ocean? Are you ready to help your students live like they love the ocean? Join us for an action-based summit that prepares and motivates teachers to be part of the plastic pollution solution!

Each day, we throw away about 300 million tons of petroleum-based plastic bottles, bags, utensils, packaging and other so-called disposable items. Ironically, these disposable plastics will persist in the environment and travel throughout the global food web virtually forever.

This three-part summit is designed for teachers who are ready to go in-depth into plastic pollution issues and solutions with their students. Sessions will focus on content background into the science behind plastics issues, project ideas for the classroom and networking opportunities.
