Save Our Seas
Our Project focuses on plastic in our ocean and the effect it is having on our ocean. We choose our project because we wanted to make a positive impact in our local area and on our planet.
WHO WE ARE
We are a group of students from RTC who aim to educate people on water pollution and the effect plastic wastage is having on our seas.
Watch the video that we made for this project
of our planet is covered by Oceans
Over 5.3 million tonnes of plastic enter our ocean each year
We wanted to create awareness, reduce the plastic pollution and usage in our area.
We ran a water campaign ‘Rethink your drink’, the aim of our campaign is to educate people on how to choose a healthy drinking option and to use a reusable water bottle.
We created awareness posters and displayed these around our centre and in the community.
Our team arranged a beach clean-up on our local beach to reduce the waste entering our ocean. Raheny Tidy Towns gave us equipment and Ryan Andrews supported us at our clean up.
Throughout this project our team learnt so many new skills such as team building, communication, researching, organisation and time keeping.
All of our team and fellow peers now use reusable water bottles and are arranging future clean-ups in our local area.
Throughout this project we learnt new skills
