National Recycling Week: How can you prevent marine plastic pollution? (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5)

Live Event

Join Marine Biologist Vinuri Silva to find out more about marine plastic pollution and how microplastics end up in our oceans


Did you know that around 40% of the total waste produced in Australia goes into landfill each year, which is around 20 million tonnes worth of waste! Recycling our daily litter correctly is one of the biggest ways we can reduce the total amount of waste we send to landfill every year.

Join marine scientist Vinuri Silva during this year’s National Recycling Week, to learn all about recycling, why it’s important, what products go in what bin and what happens when you don’t recycle items correctly. With a background in marine plastic pollution, Vinuri will also teach you about plastic pollution and how you can reduce your plastic footprint and help to prevent microplastics entering our oceans.

We’ll see you on the 13th of November- get excited to improve your recycling in schools and at home!
