Oceans Are NOT Rubbish  - October Half term challenge 2018

Please bring back to school by Friday 2nd November


Of the 330 million metric tonnes of plastic consumed worldwide annually, over 12.7 MILLION tonnes of plastic – everything from bottles and packaging to glitter – is dumped in our oceans. According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, that's one truckload a minute.

There are an estimated 1.8 trillion bits of plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and an estimated 300 billion pieces of plastic adrift in the Arctic. A million seabirds and over 100,000 marine mammals die from plastic pollution annually. Turtles, dolphins, seals, albatrosses and even whales are being ensnared by nets and plastic bags.

All you have to do is… 

  • create a brilliant sculpture of an endangered sea creature or seabird from plastic rubbish

Prizes will be awarded for each year group and the best entries will be entered into the national competition.
