Created by Streamable Learning

Plastic is everywhere and incredibly valuable to humans… but it should not be disposable. More than 8 million tons of plastic enter our oceans every year – that is the same as one dump truck a minute. Moreover, there is something very simple we can all do every day to help reduce the plastic problem. Join an Ocean Wise Educator at the Vancouver Aquarium as we step into Vortex, Douglas Coupland’s Radical Art Installation, and think about plastic in a transformative way.
