Plastic Oceans Australasia is based in Melbourne and aims to work throughout Australasia to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’.
Plastic pollution is a global issue that impacts our ocean, our health and our well-being. Through education, business and science, Plastic Oceans Australasia is working to stem the tide of plastic entering the ocean, before it is too late.
Plastic Oceans Australasia promotes the conservation and protection of the physical and natural environment by:
Raising public awareness of the effects of plastic waste on the environment, including the public health implications and the impact of associated environmental toxins.
Identifying and supporting environmental solutions aimed at reducing the level and impact of plastic pollution on the environment and public health.
Plastic Oceans Australasia advances education by providing educational resources about the conservation, improvement and protection of the physical and natural environment from plastic waste.
