THIRD PARTY COMPANIES
This challenge is currently on hold for 2020. We are checking in on this regularly and will contact teachers with any updates to the EcoMarines challenges.
This activity gives you an opportunity to educate people about our beautiful environment and the challenges we face, as well as encouraging the school community to adopt better practices to help.
For schools in the Brisbane City Council area, their Litter Team are able to run an educational stall and provide some clean up equipment at school fetes as part of the ‘104 or more’ program. The stall focuses on positive litter behaviours and actions, with the option for people to participate in a short self-guided clean up around the grounds.
HOW IT WORKS
Ambassadors brainstorm ideas to make the event more eco-friendly and, if relevant, send a friendly letter to the organisers of the event with your ideas. (E.g. encourage the use of paper plates and utensils instead of plastic, organise lots of rubbish/recycle bins so people don't litter, etc.)
If you're able to have a stall, or organise your own eco-friendly event, email us to secure a Borrow Box for the date of your event. Please confirm if you would like the Tangalooma voucher, and whether you would like Brisbane City Council to attend.
Ambassadors and support crew brainstorm fun activities to run at the stand.
'Refuse Slam Dunk' is a fun way for people to dispose of their rubbish by shooting it into the bin like a basketball. You could have general and recycling for people to learn which bin to use. St Rita's tried this game at their fete stall and it was a hit!
Sell seed packets to encourage people to grow more plants.
Our 'Guess How Many Straw Wrappers' game... you'd be surprised at how many there are!
