Based in Inner West Sydney 11 year old Watson and his Mum Alison (CC Director) have been going in to Primary Schools to educate on the "take-make-waste" linear approach to resources and teach about ideas on how we can transition to a circular economy when we think about things like clothing, shoes, sporting equipment, packaging and more.
We also introduce the #StopMicroWaste Guppyfriend Washing Bag that is designed to capture the plastic microfibres from the school uniforms when being washed.
P&C STOP! MICROWASTE CAMPAIGN.
We have teamed up with Ocean Remedy and Stop!MicroWaste to create a campaign to help Australian and New Zealand school P&Cs to both fundraise and help avoid microwaste shedding from school uniforms to the oceans.
School P&Cs can purchase from us at cost to then add an extra amount that helps bring funds to the school. Schools and P&Cs can email us to receive information on how your school can participate.
Claire's research into producing her beautiful, sun-safe and eco-friendly swimwear has brought her to working with the German inventors of the Guppyfriend and then bring to them to Australia.
Her goal to "make laundry ocean friendly" has led her to conduct extensive research into microfibres and we encourage you to visit her at Ocean Remedy and the Stop!MicroWaste site to learn more and become engaged.
This can include:
- becoming a school P&C representative to work with us on Watson's P&C fundraising campaign
- learn more about the Guppyfriend Wash Bag plus purchase and distribute.
- and participate in sharing this information to support our oceans.
