Plastic Free July Craft Activities!

DID YOU KNOW?

We now use about 20 times more plastic than we did 50 years ago. Included in that plastic consumption are the 4.4 billion plastic straws that are used each year! For the month of July all SEA LIFE aquariums are encouraging all schools to get involved in the Plastic Free July initiative and reduce plastic use within their school and community.

We've created several resources to help educate students on how to reduce their plastic and make plastic free alternatives. 

Why not host a class workshop to discuss our plastic use and to learn how to make beeswax wraps:

Or how about an activity to help students create a plastic free lunchbox to bring to school?
