Do you have friends or family that use single-use plastics than necessary? Prepare a slideshow for them, with facts and photos about the problems with plastics. Afterwards, ask them if they learned anything new or if your presentation made them care a bit more. What was their response? Share your slideshow on social media and educate others.

Engage two youth groups or schools in a plastic face-off to see which group can collect the most plastic bottles in 1 day. Did the activity make everyone think more about reducing their use of plastics? Did the final amount of plastics collected shock them?

Spend a day picking up plastics you find littering your neighborhood or community. Take note of all you find, compile your findings and write a letter to your local municipality with suggestions for how to reduce plastic pollution. Should they provide more trash and recycling bins? Should they have signs reminding people not to litter?
