Starting in October 2018, we began our journey to share what we’ve learned from Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii with a larger demographic. By targeting and engaging with students along the west coast, we directly impact and magnify awareness and action on plastic pollution in many coastal communities where efforts are desperately needed. Impacting these communities will not only help keep their local beaches clean, but has the potential to benefit oceans worldwide. Over the course of the academic school year, we aim to educate a minimum of 10,000 K-12 students about the plastic pollution epidemic. We believe that our engaging programming can help students understand the life cycle of plastics through narrative storytelling and how the impacts of plastics are seen most severely on the Hawaiian coastlines. Most importantly, we will be inspiring students to create their own proactive solutions to stop debris from entering the oceans in the first place.
Two out of every three breaths you take comes from the ocean.
Our own survival requires a healthy ocean, so help us on our mission to spread the values of Sustainable Coastlines to the mainland! Along our journey we will be engaging with communities, collaborating with other like-minded organizations, meeting with businesses, hosting cleanups and documenting our work. We encourage you to follow along!
