What do you do with all the plastic you find on the beach? Does it end up in the bin or have you ever tried to give it a second life by turning it into a piece of art like Lorella here from Rethinking Plastic Revolution? Lorella was our 2019 Ocean Champion Challenge winner for her commitment to pick up 10,000 cigarette butts from all over New Plymouth, raising awareness that butts are plastic and not degradable and the biggest single item contributor of marine plastic pollution.

Have you thought about entering the Ocean Champion Challenge? Prizes available for Junior and Senior Entrants!! www.seaweek.org.nz/nominate-your-ocean-champion/
