Teacher/Student Resources

On this page is a collation of resources related to plastic pollution that teachers and students may find useful. Many of the following short videos were played during our presentations and there are also some that weren’t! We have included links to other cool organisations and a whole lot of articles and research examining different aspects and layers of the issue.

In case you missed it, you will find a comprehensive outline of the problem and its causes here along with a commentary about the role of recycling in the global solution to plastic pollution.
