Protect our Oceans
for ages 4-14
Saturday 25th September 2021
Over 13 BILLION plastic bottles are bought every year in the UK and over 5.5 BILLION aren’t recycled. These become litter on land and in the sea, are sent to landfill or are incinerated.
Plastic in the ocean seriously affects everything that lives in the sea – it injures and traps birds, mammals and fish and enters the human foodchain when we eat fish and seafood.
We all love the ocean and the wildlife that lives there and we want to protect it from plastic waste.
PADI Aware week 2021 takes place this year from 18th-26th September. This is where the global diving community looks to place special focus on environmental awareness. To mark the occasion we’ll be creating a special window display in our Quedam shop highlighting the damage plastic can do.
We’ll also be running a poster competition for young people aged 4-14 with the wider theme “Protect Our Oceans”.
Your poster could hang in
our window for a week in October
and you could win some amazing prizes!
