Ocean Heroes Toolkit
Calling All Heroes to Stop Plastic Pollution!
Single-use plastics (straws, utensils, bottles, etc.) are choking our oceans and contributing to climate change. We need Heroes like you to help stop plastic pollution reaching our oceans!
The Quest walks Heroes through the process of developing a campaign to stop the use and disposal of single-use plastic straws in their community. It serves as the follow-up to the Ocean Heroes Bootcamp.
How Can Heroes Help?
This Quest is focused on helping Heroes to develop and implement a campaign to ban single-use plastics, specifically plastic straws, in their communities. This Quest was designed as a follow-up to the Ocean Heroes Bootcamp, and funding is available to kids who have participated in this event.
