Get your class involved in Plastic Free July!


We now use about 20 times more plastic than we did 50 years ago. Included in that plastic consumption are the 4.4 billion plastic straws that are used each year! For the month of July SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium are encouraging all schools to get involved in the Plastic Free July initiative and reduce plastic use within their school and community.

We've created several resources to help educate students on how to reduce their plastic and make plastic free alternatives. Download below!
