The plastic pollution crisis is one that is incredibly pervasive, but Plastic Oceans Canada is trying to fix that through direct action and education centered around creating a circular economy. With less than 10% of the world’s plastic produced being recycled, something more needs to be done. We commend those who take action through cleaning up our shorelines, but the unfortunate part is that much of what is collected ends up in landfills again, which inevitably makes its way back into our environment. Our goal is to create change through educating our young leaders of the future on the importance of a circular economy, which is why we’ve created the Circular Economy Ambassador Program.
