HANDS-ON RECYCLING WORKSHOPS
≋ Our outreach program will use hands-on workshops to educate others about the issues surrounding ghost nets and ocean plastic but with a twist.We won’t just focus on the problems that we face but also the solutions through interactive demonstrations of how the plastic can be recycled into new products.
≋ Our workshops will bring a mini version of our real life recycling process into your school or community. Our specialist hand-operated shredder and injection moulder will teach our waste-into-resource concept by providing an interactive experience enabling participants to transform their beach-clean plastic into new forms and products themselves.
≋ Each workshop can be tailored to your school, community group or business’s needs and our sessions range from half hour talks to full day workshops.

Education and Outreach (PlaNET Action)
Before Waterhaul, I taught a university accredited marine biology course and scuba diving on circumnavigating sailing vessel. Within my course, I had a strong emphasis on plastic pollution and climate change, but also the the positive impact we as individuals can have on the environment. Now settled on dry land, I'm developing and delivering PlaNET Action; a unique education programme involving hands-on ocean plastic recycling workshops which will enable people to connect with the environmental issues we are facing and empower them to make positive change.
