The registered Non-Profit Making Oceans Plastic Free e .V. is targeting the reduction of plastic pollution in our oceans. One important focus region of our work is in Indonesia, the second largest source of plastic pollution, where it is estimated that up to 200 Million plastic bags end up in the ocean each day!
Single-use plastics, such as plastic bags, are one of the largest contributors to marine plastic pollution. The problem: Plastic never disappears. It only disintegrates into small particles called microplastics. These microplastics are often mistaken as food and are causing death to a large number of marine animals. In addition, through the food chain, marine animals are passing microplastics and its chemicals to humans threatening our health as well.
At Making Oceans Plastic Free we have developed the award winning Tasini concept:
We raise plastic pollution awareness through eco-eduational modules.
We provide alternatives and break plastic habits.
- We stop plastic pollution at the source.
“Tasini” - the key to break the plastic bag habit.
Tasini is a reusable bag in the shape of marine animals which are designed to be an eco ambassador that raises awareness about plastic pollution in their ecosystem. The Tasini is attached to a keychain and has a foldable bag hidden inside making it fun and easy to stop using plastic bags.
Tasini play an important role in the eco-education sessions of Making Oceans Plastic Free. Instead of a moralizing approach, Tasini are likeable marine characters that motivate children towards marine conservation, through compassion and sympathy.
Together we can break plastic habits!
