Students for a plastic free paradise

P4230066Local primary students from Port Douglas State School are doing their part to spread the message about the harmful effects of plastic bags on marine life as part of the Think Outside the Bag project.

During the past school term, Reef Guardian students from Port Douglas State School have been learning about the harmful effects of plastic bags and other marine debris, which are affecting their community. With the help from their teacher, Mr. Doug Barnes, these students have created amazing posters relating to this issue.

As Mr. Barnes explains, “The Reef Guardian representatives of the school were very enthusiastic to assist the community by raising awareness of the negatives associated with plastic bags and hope to see Port Douglas a plastic bag free zone in the future.”
Everyone is encouraged to go and view this wonderful art installation.

The installation is on display at the Port Douglas kiosk at 13-29 Mowbray Street (Community Centre) until the end of May.
