Litter and pollution are a major problem for the environment. It's estimated that over 1 million marine animals worldwide are killed each year due to plastic debris. Not only is this litter threatening for wildlife, but it's also dangerous for people and damaging to our tourism and fishing industry.
Beach cleans are a simple and effective way of reducing the amount of litter on our beach and oceans. That's why as part of Oceans4Life we organise beach cleans regularly throughout the year to help create a safer environment for wildlife, our families, friends and ourselves.
At Oceans4Life we are firm believers in the power of education to enact change. The better informed people are about the issues facing our ocean the more inspired they will feel to protect it.
For this reason, we offer free outreach sessions for children at schools to help raise awareness and inspire action against plastic pollution. Whether it's a beach clean, arts and craft session or just a fun presentation at assembly we are able to tailor our program to fit each school's curriculum.
Feel free to contact us if you'd like us to visit your school!
ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC
We understand that trying to reduce our use of plastics is not as easy as it sounds. We have come to rely very heavily on plastics and we often struggle to live without it due to lack of alternatives.
In order to make this easier at Oceans4Life we have set up an online shop where everyone will be able to easily purchase alternative products to single use plastic ones in the market. Any profits made will be used to help fund our efforts to reduce the impacts of plastic pollution in Gran Canaria.
Take a look at our shop now and help stop the plastic cycle!
WORKING WITH BUSINESSES
At Oceans4Life we work alongside local businesses to help them reduce their plastic footprint.
We supply businesses with a wide variety of alternatives to single-use plastics and provide free advertisement for those who are already making an effort to reduce their plastic consumption.
Already a large number of businesses all around the island have joined our quest for reducing plastic pollution, be the next one!
