Want to help our oceans? Follow the lead of these students! Young innovators presented year-long projects to reduce plastic use at the Ocean Plastic Pollution Summit at the Aquarium in May. Partnering with NOAA, the Aquarium helps educators develop action-based classroom lessons about marine debris.

Students made an impact in their schools, with results like:

  • 90 percent reduction in classroom water bottle waste
  • 3,000 reusable grocery bags distributed
  • 21,000 single-use plastic water bottles saved from landfills
