About

P.S. Our Beaches (Plastic Solution for Our Beaches) is an organisation working to rid our environment of single-use plastics. Since its establishment in 2016, P.S. Our Beaches has expanded with members right across the country and as far as Portugal and Thailand. In this time, we have initiated litter audits, awareness posts on sustainability initiatives and short interviews with organisations such as DoC and UNESCO to raise the profile of environmental issues.

Our work involves:

(a) Developing a network of young people passionate about reducing plastic waste

(b) Initiating local beach cleanups, litter audits and promoting zero waste initiatives.

(c) Increasing public knowledge through the arts, poetry and plastic free campaigns

(d) Developing technologies to decrease the impact these plastic have on our oceans and marine life.

(e) Facilitating and promoting conferences to assist young New Zealanders to develop an awareness of global environmental issues.
